Interpretation of the CJJA Constitution
History of CCJA


Encouraged by the rapid growth and rising influence of community college education nationally, inspired by community colleges' increasing responsibility for the first two years of higher education generally, and dedicated to the precept that community college journalism education must seek the high standards that have characterized four year colleges' preparation of men and women for effective careers in the mass media, the Community College Journalism Association is hereby established. Among its objectives, the CCJA will:
• Provide, through formal affiliation with the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication, a professional organization for community college journalism teachers.
• Foster membership and active participation in CCJA, AEJMC, and other professional journalism organizations.
• Pursue excellence in the development of journalism curricula for students who plan to transfer to a four year college or university.
• Seek coordination of curricula, requirements, and standards of journalism and other courses with those of similar courses offered by area four year colleges and universities such that transferring students with a journalism/mass communication major will receive the greatest possible acceptance of their community-college courses at the four year schools.
