What is SCCC?
Southwest Colorado Community College, a division of Pueblo Community College, offers comprehensive educational and training services to our community in Southwest Colorado. SCCC is a result of the recent merger between San Juan Basin Technical College and PCC’s Southwest Campus. We are growing and bringing new capabilities to the region and are looking for instructors to help us reach this mission.
Our Faculty and Instructors
SCCC employs several faculty members who teach classes throughout the year, but we also rely upon a pool of talented part-time instructors to complete our instructional staff. Part-time instructors teach up to 12 credit hours per semesters.
