Academic Advising advocates for student success by partnering with students to develop and achieve their creative, academic, personal, and professional goals as participants in diverse local and global communities.


We prepare students to navigate the requirements for success in a rapidly shifting world of work by assisting them in defining their personal career success, acquiring the skills to remain competitive in an ever-evolving job market, building strong professional connections, and developing entrepreneurial strategies for developing their own business/practice. Our team provides career coaching for students and alumni by appointment.


Counseling Services is committed to personal development and professional advancement of students engaged in an arts-based educational environment fostering creativity, curiosity, and diversity. Counseling Services encourages student success and well-being by providing a broad spectrum of mental health services, including individual and couples therapy, crisis intervention, consultation, referral, workshops on mental health topics, and outreach.


The Office of the Dean of Students provides assistance, intervention, prevention, and referral services to the college community. The office also serves as an advocate for students while challenging students to develop personal responsibility, practice ethical decision-making, and seek social justice as they grow into artist-citizens.


ISAP provides services to help international and exchange students understand federal immigration regulations, manage cultural transitions, and develop the international community at the college.

Learning Resources helps CCA students connect to the people, tools, and techniques that can help them learn best. Our mission is to (1) generate and apply knowledge about curricular and co-curricular learning; (2) provide academic assistance while guiding students toward independence and self-advocacy; and (3) support faculty and staff as critically reflective educators.


Professional and student staff work together to provide an inclusive environment of learning and transformation with an emphasis on knowledge of and care for self, active community engagement, and social justice that encourages the development of responsible critical makers.


Student Life fosters a culture in which students are the makers of their own learning experiences. We engage students to develop personally, socially, and intellectually to become artist-citizens. In collaboration with students, the professional staff supports the students' academic journey through the following co-curricular programming: new student orientation, student activities, student organizations, leadership development, and commencement.
