CCSC (The Consortium for Computing Sciences in Colleges) is made up of 10 regions. CCSC-Eastern represents the Eastern Region of the CCSC.
The consortium is a non-profit organization focused on promoting quality computer-oriented curricula as well as effective use of computing in smaller institutions of higher learning which are typically non-research in orientation. It 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 Consortium publishes the Journal of Computing Sciences in Colleges and the CCSC Newsletter.
