Information for trustees of Ohio's two-year colleges is provided by the Ohio Association of Community Colleges which was founded in 1993 as a forum for sound trustee training, communication, and trustee-president cooperation.

The Ohio Faculty Senate of Community and Technical Colleges, established in 1995, is made up of representatives chosen by the faculty from each two-year college in Ohio.   The OFSCTC, which meets four times annually in the offices of the Regents, provides the voice and perspective of the two-year faculty to the Chancellor and Regents on the relevant issues facing higher education. 

The American Association of Community Colleges is the primary national advocacy organization for community colleges, with the mission of "building a nation of learners."
