Clovis Community College (CCC), located in Clovis, New Mexico, is a higher education institution offering instruction at the associate's degree level. Due to the close proximity and past connections, CCC works closely with Eastern New Mexico University to provide area residents with educational opportunities.

History[edit]

Clovis Community College was established in 1961 as a branch campus of Eastern New Mexico University in conjunction with the Clovis Municipal Schools. The current campus was constructed in 1978 and rests on 25 acres (100,000 m2) of land donated by Ervin Schepps. Over time, CCC grew to cover 100 acres (0.40 km2). In 1990, local voters established CCC as a locally governed independent community college.[1]

In recent years, CCC has made efforts to modernize the curriculum including the addition of online courses and computer based learning. In the Fall of 2006, students were issued school email addresses to improve communication and online education.

In the Summer of 2006, CCC was assured by the State Board of Education that its funding would not be cut for at least one year, despite recent enrollment declines. [2] Similar declines were seen throughout the state, [3] but CCC suffered a loss of over 10% from 2004 to 2006. [4]

In the summer of 2006, the Board of Trustees approved the contract of CCC's newest President, John Neibling.[5]
