CCAC is holding an Open House for Military, Veterans, and Dependents on August 6.

 

"The biggest challenge sometimes comes from the cultural environment that you're thrust into." - Theo Collins

  In 2013, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported on the expected influx of members of the military in classrooms under the GI Bill. Our guests experienced that transition first hand. Dwight Boddorf, Marine veteran and director of veterans services at the Community College of Allegheny County, joined fellow former Marine Theo Collins, executive producer of the documentary Project 22, in the studio to address how colleges and universities are accommodating veterans.

Also in the program, a preview of the new CMOA Edward Hopper exhibit and award-winning singer-songwriter Randy Newman looks ahead to his performance with the Pittsburgh Symphony.
