Columbia College is a complicated organization, serving the traditional 18-22 year old student and non-traditional civilian and military adult students, in a multitude of modalities. Columbia College has more than 30 locations in 12 states and a location at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba. The Main Campus and Evening and Online Programs are in Columbia, Missouri.
How does a diverse and complicated school like Columbia College serve the educational needs of all the students? One answer was to create regions for the unique program coordinators and directors at the locations under the guidance of a regional director.
Military locations are sorted by either military service or proximity. Civilian locations are sorted as stand-alone locations, defined as offices and classrooms in Columbia owned or leased buildings outside of Columbia, Missouri; or two-by-two locations which are Columbia College offices at community colleges.
The locations in Military Region 3 are:
- Redstone Arsenal, Alabama
- Minot Air Force Base, North Dakota
- Honolulu, Hawaii, a unique location that services military installations in Oahu, including Joint Base Pearl Harbor Hickam, Schofield Barracks, Kaneohe, Tripler Army Medical Center, and USCG Base Honolulu
- Whidbey Island, Washington
- NS Everett/Marysville, Washington
