For Immediate Release

Community Care College, a private-nonprofit—career and technical college based in Tulsa, Oklahoma, suffered severe damage from a tornado that hit early Sunday morning on South Sheridan Road.

The administration responded quickly to assess the damage and to implement disaster recovery procedures and protocol. Immediate action was taken to address and mitigate further damage caused by water, hazardous debris, electrical lines and shattered glass.  The integrity of student records—online and hard-copy—are protected.

Dr. Kevin Kirk, College President, issued the following statement:  “The college is grateful for the cooperation and patience that the employees and students have shown. Although offices, laboratories, and classroom space are displaced; the positive attitudes and incredible support from the community has made a challenging situation into one of compassion and love.” 

Although classes will not be held on campus until further notice; students will continue attending by way of the college’s “Learning Management System” (virtual classroom) as well as additional support by Community Care College’s branch campuses; Oklahoma Technical College and Clary Sage College; all on Sheridan Road.

“We are three colleges, but one community,” says Dr. Kirk.

Students are advised to communicate with their instructors and to follow the latest updates on the college’s Facebook page and student portal.
