About Us

A Diverse Community of Dedicated Employees

Located in the heart of downtown Denver, Community College of Denver (CCD) is located on the Auraria Campus, home of three institutions: CCD, University of Colorado-Denver and Metropolitan State University of Denver.

At CCD, we believe that by working together we become stronger—through teamwork we can achieve our common vision and goals. We work to maintain an environment where employees feel respected and supported and where teamwork is prized. Find out more about why CCD is a great place to work, accomplish and thrive.
