CCI Community Resources

Dear Members of the CCI Community,

During this unprecedented time, I want to take a moment to send positive thoughts and best wishes to everyone in our CCI family. This crisis will no doubt pose challenges for us a College, but the safety and wellbeing of our students, faculty, professional staff, and the greater population is of paramount importance.

While all classes and events for this quarter will be held online, our faculty and professional staff will continue to provide the best possible learning experiences and engagement opportunities for all CCI students. This CCI Community Resources webpage will be maintained with resources for navigating the Spring Quarter. Information and links are organized below to facilitate quick access to the information you may need.

Stay tuned to our homepage for the latest College news and events. We are planning a wide range of virtual events to ensure that our students have opportunities to connect with one another, as well as interact with our Corporate Partners and faculty members.

Important updates will continue to be shared via, and I encourage you to utilize that email address for any questions that may arise or thoughts and ideas you have to share; that inbox is monitored daily and all inquiries are funneled to the proper contacts.

In addition, Drexel University’s COVID-19 response site will continue to be the primary resource for official University policy and response for the duration of this crisis:

I appreciate your continued flexibility and support, and I send my sincere best wishes for a safe, healthy, and productive spring.
