Eric Lee to Lead Colorado Community College Online

Eric Lee, president and CEO of the Colorado Black Chamber of Commerce, has been chosen as the next executive director of Colorado Community College Online (CCCO).  The organization is a consortium made up of the 13 community colleges in the Colorado Community College System. It offers courses, not degree programs. But credits earned with CCCO can be transferred to any of the 13 colleges in the system.

Dr. Lee has served as head of the Colorado Black Chamber of Commerce since April 2009. Previously, he was assistant to the president at Suffolk University in Boston, and taught at Suffolk’s Sawyer Business School.

Dr. Lee holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Wayne State College in Wayne, Nebraska, and earned a doctoral degree from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
