Portland Community College | Portland, Oregon

Your ASPCC Student Leadership Team 2016-2017 Coming Soon!

ASPCC stands for Associated Students of Portland Community College. ASPCC is the student government that represents student needs and serves as a united voice for students on campus. We advocate for students in committees district-wide and bring a student opinion to the table when discussing issues such as educational programs, allocation of funds, bond measures, security, transportation, cafeteria issues, legislative advocacy, textbooks, facilities, and much, much more! In short, we make sure that PCC takes students into account when deciding on it's varied policies.


Do you have a general questions about Student Government? Please contact Ashley. Have a question specifically for a member of ASPCC? All our contact info is on the Staff List page.

Please check out general council meetings that are held every Monday from 3-5pm in the Student Union Building Rm. 204; these are open to the public.
