St. Louis Community College (STLCC) is a public community college in Saint Louis, Missouri. It is supported by the Junior College District of St. Louis City – St. Louis County, servicing 718 sq. miles.
Over the objections of the faculty and student body, in 1976 STLCC administration changed the names of the individual campuses to the format St. Louis Community College–Campus Name.
In addition, there are four satellite facilities throughout the area.
Dissatisfaction with Chancellor Pittman
Jeff Pittman became chancellor of STLCC in July, 2015. Pittman is reported to have received approximately 40,000 dollars for housing and car allowance in 2016. The Chancellor's level of compensation was characterized as 70 percent above the national average by some faculty concerned with the management of the college. Student protests occurred under Pittman.
On November 28, 2017 the college's chapter of the NEA called for a vote of no confidence in Chancellor Pittman and the board of trustees. Included in the NEA's call for a vote of no confidence was the statement by its President Robert Hertel, that the union was responding to "the levels of waste and mismanagement taking place at the college for YEARS." In January 2018, the Executive Council of the college's chapter of the National Education Association had a unanimous vote of "No Confidence" in Chancellor Pittman.
The college grants Associate's degrees (A.A., A.S., A.A.S., A.F.A.), as well as Certificates of Proficiency (for completing a specified one-year course of study) and Certificates of Specialization (for completing a specified six-month course of study).
STLCC operates as a single entity in athletic competition (as opposed to each campus operating as a separate program, which was the case prior to consolidation). Athletic teams are open to any eligible STLCC student, regardless of which campus the student attends.
