While this may appear to be nothing more than a mere administrative change, independence also means for CCC a more secure financial future and more control over its curriculum and operations.Carroll's only public institution of higher education has operated as an appendage of Catonsville Community College since its inception in 1977. As a branch of the Baltimore County system, Carroll matured into an institution of stature with about 2,000 students.
