The purpose of the Faculty Association is to improve OCCC's academic environment and to promote faculty needs and goals. Faculty Association provides a formal and direct means of communication between College faculty and administration. As an association, we share information, gather input, consider and recommend improvements.  Faculty Association represents all faculty, though membership is voluntary. Dues are $10.00. Officers are elected.
