What is NCCP?

The National Clearinghouse for Commuter Programs is a network of individuals and repository of resources focused on fostering commuter college student success. A global network of NCCP professionals serve a variety of institutional types and hold a variety of roles at colleges and universities. NCCP members share a strong commitment to fostering success for commuter college students.

The growing network of engaged NCCP professionals actively contribute to a resource repository of good practices, research, lists of current literature, surveys, data, and many other tools to inform commuter-focused efforts to develop, maintain, evaluate, and continuously improve commuter and off-campus programs. Whether you are developing a student survey or re-writing a job description, NCCP resources and network of professionals are a message away from access to current, relevant, and innovative tools to enhance your commuter programs and services.

NCCP – Influencing the Commuter Conversation

With your NCCP membership, you also support advocacy for commuter students in national conversations on assessment and good practices. Your NCCP co-directors, Dr. Kristi Mindrup and Audrey Adamson maintain connections between NCCP and national organizations. NCCP provides access to resources for the ACPA American College Educators International Commission for Commuter and Adult Student Learners. NCCP also sends a representative to serve on the Council for Advancement of Standards in Higher Education’s Council of Representatives. This representation ensures that commuter student interests, research, and trends are reflected in CAS assessment standards used by professionals across the globe.

Why Should You Become a Member?

Join or renew your membership today to access information on the web, Facebook, a discussion listserv, and our NCCP video chat called “Hangout with NCCP”. You’ll also enjoy web-based access to a variety of resources, and if you don’t see what you’re looking for, NCCP will help identify resources outside our repository to inform your work. Many professionals who serve commuter students say they often feel disconnected to other similarly focused professionals on their campuses. By joining the National Clearinghouse for Commuter Programs, you will have access to a world of people and information committed to a common goal. Best of all, your NCCP connection means you have access to also contribute your expertise to NCCP resources and conversations.
