Founded in 1956, Corning Community College (CCC) began modestly in a scattering of old buildings in the city of Corning. Today, we encompass a 550-acre main campus on Spencer Hill with a complex of eight buildings, plus an observatory, planetarium and nature center. Located in the heart of the Finger Lakes region of New York State, CCC offers 40 academic programs (including four online programs), more than 800 courses, and customized business training opportunities to support students of all ages and backgrounds in our community. Serving 5,500 students, CCC also offers a variety of services within the community at our offsite locations throughout Steuben, Chemung, and Schuyler Counties.
The Corning Community College Archives & Special Collections houses other collections in addition to the images found here. Over time, more material will be added to this online collection but in the meantime, researchers interested in discovering more should contact CCC Archives. (firstname.lastname@example.org)

CCC Archives Mission
The Archives at Corning Community College is responsible for the collection and preservation of documents and other materials which reflect the College’s administrative and social history. The Archives maintains official and unofficial documents on the activities and achievements of the college trustees, faculty, staff, students and alumni. The decision to permanently retain specific records is the responsibility of the College Regional Board of Trustees and administrators in consultation with the College Archivist.
