|The Southeastern Association for Community College Research (SACCR) was founded in 1971 and currently the organization covers 14 states from Texas in the Southwest, to Kentucky and Virginia in the East. SACCR provides a network for members to express themselves on matters of current and mutual concern and to advise other groups on matters related to research and planning in community-based, postsecondary institutions. SACCR is a regional organization devoted explicitly to community college issues.
The Association seeks to fulfills its purpose by meeting the following goals:
- Identify and articulate issues at the local, state, and regional levels affecting research and planning at community-based, post-secondary institutions.
- Promote training in and concern for research and planning as an integral part of community-based, postsecondary institutions.
- Facilitate communication and exchange of information among Association members and other interest groups on current trends and practices in research and planning.
- Promote training and professional development of those involved in research and planning.
- Coordinate the Association’s activities with related interest groups and associations to maximize resources.
- Promote cooperation and communication among various other higher education agencies, organizations, and associations on matters of mutual concern in research and planning.
