The Consortium for Computing Sciences in Colleges, aka the CCSC, is a national, non-profit organization, consisting of 10 regions, that promotes quality computer-oriented curricula, and the effective use of computing, in institutions of higher learning which are typically non-research in orientation.
CCSC supports activities which assist faculty in making appropriate judgments concerning computing resources and educational applications of computer technology. Because departments in smaller colleges and universities are usually small and not highly specialized, the Consortium also encourages the sharing of expertise, effective curricula,and efficient technological applications. The Consortium is concerned with the advancement of major programs in both Computer Science and Computer Information Systems, and with the use of computers in the Liberal Arts and Sciences. The conference program reflects the Consortium's goals and accommodates the limited resources for travel typical of member institutions.
