Community College Consortium Logo
The Community College Consortium (CCC) logo is the culmination of Community College Initiative (CCI) participants coming together to design a logo that represents their program. A competition was held by the CCC, and the insignia above won the prize. The focal point of the design are the three C's of the Community College Consortium intertwined with one another. Within each "C" a primary element of the CCI Program is represented—Education, Community and Understanding. These three elements of the program intertwine with one another to create an enriching, once-in-a-lifetime experience for the participants. Lastly, the colors selected represent the most dominant common flag colors of CCC CCI countries.
