Community College Day

The Texas Association of Community Colleges is pleased to host Community College Day at the capitol on January 26, 2023! This event allows community college students the opportunity to directly engage with their state senators and local representatives. Students will hear from higher education leaders, interact with State Leadership and learn how to effectively advocate for education. We encourage every college to attend. 

This page provides an overview of the day and helpful links. Reach out to Sondra Guardado at [email protected] with any questions or concerns. 


Community College Day invites Texas college students to engage with their elected officials and discuss issues relevant to them and higher education.

Overview of the Day

Below is a high-level overview of Community College Day. As a reminder, every college is responsible for booking their own legislative meetings. For your convenience, the TACC team has created this helpful guide providing a step by step on how to effectively schedule a meeting with your local representatives.
