Centers of Excellence- CCM

Champlain's Centers of Excellence—on-campus learning centers with studio-like environments—put students' classroom knowledge to the test through hands-on experience on professional projects.

Students across all divisions work together to publish books, launch businesses, and develop games and applications. At the core of many of our Centers of Excellence is creativity. For students in the CCM Division, they can test their knowledge and increase their skills in the Champlain College Publishing Initiative, the Emergent Media Center and BYOBiz®.

  • Champlain College Publishing Initiative (CCPI): Champlain students are actively involved in the twenty-first century world of publishing. Whether you're a writer, editor, copyeditor, proof-reader, graphic designer, illustrator, artist, publicist, videographer, web developer or social media strategist, CCPI has a place for you to get involved.
  • Emergent Media Center (EMC): In partnership with industry, public institutions and nonprofits, students involved in the EMC collaborative with faculty and clients to develop new concepts, processes, uses and applications for games and other emergent media.
  • Build Your Own Business (BYOBiz)®: As a student entrepreneur, the BYOBiz program at Champlain allows you to gain assistance in building your business. Many CCM students launch successful freelance careers with the help of BYOBiz before they graduate.
