ACM CCECC - Supporting Faculty in 2-year Computing Programs

While the ACM CCECC will continue to focus on developing curricular guidance and related tools, they are actively supporting the launch of a new ACM community, ACM2Y, which is designed to address community building, professional development, and other needs of faculty who teach in 2-year computing programs. Stay tuned for more information on upcoming ACM2Y activities and how you can join this new ACM community!

Please join ACM2Y for a Virtual Panel: From Pivot to Promise: Lessons Learned during COVID-19.

  • What did we as computing educators learn from student experiences?
  • How do we incorporate these experiences/discoveries into our ‘new normal’?
  • What went well during COVID-19?
  • Lessons learned

When: Friday, September 24th, 2021, at 3pm ET / 12pm PT / 7pm GMT
Where: Join the Virtual Panel: From Pivot to Promise via Zoom
Who: ACM2Y, a new group within ACM for those interested in computing education in two-year higher education programs, has invited three community college faculty leaders to share their experiences.


The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) recently issued the Information Technology Transfer Curricula 2020 (IT-Transfer2020) to guide two- and four-year Information Technology programs in implementing smooth transfer opportunities for IT students. The IT Transfer Task Group of distinguished educators from throughout the United States integrated related curricular guidance and industry input to develop IT-Transfer2020.

IT-Transfer2020 closely aligns with the Information Technology Curricula 2017: Curriculum Guidelines for Baccalaureate Degree Programs in Information Technology (IT2017) published by the ACM and the IEEE Computer Society (IEEE-CS) in 2017, and it complements the Information Technology Competency Model of Core Learning Outcomes and Assessment for Associate-Degree Curriculum (IT2yr2014) which the ACM CCECC released in 2014.


We continue to solicit program examples which correlate the courses in a degree or certificate at a given school with the competencies in the Cybersecurity Curricular Guidance for Associate-Degree Programs (Cyber2yr2020). Highlight your program by submitting a Program Examples for inclusion on our web site!

For an overview of Cyber2yr2020 watch the National CyberWatch Webcast on Cyber2yr2020 recorded on May 28, 2020.
