Coffeyville Community College is a public, two-year college governed by a publicly elected six-member Board of Trustees representing the community college district.

This handbook is designed to assist College administrators with communicating important employment information to faculty and staff members, whether required by law, regulation, Board Policy, or practice.  This handbook serves as a guide to faculty and staff.  In order to accommodate the need for a faculty and staff handbook, this handbook serves as a partial listing of the policies, practices and rules adopted by the Board of Trustees. The complete Board approved Policy Manual is available in the CCC library, Vice Presidents’ offices and the Human Resource Office. 

Further, this handbook is not to be considered as either an express or implied contract between the College and the employee. Anytime the President is mentioned in this handbook, his/her designee is implied.  As a condition of employment, employees agree to follow rules and regulations which have been adopted by the Board.  This handbook may be changed or modified and items added or deleted at any time as recommended by the President and approved by the Board.


Coffeyville Community College shall be recognized as an institution which serves our diverse student population while stimulating growth in the economic, intellectual and cultural life of the area.
