We have a great team this year and we're here to serve...YOU!
ASPCC stands for Associated Students of Portland Community College. We are a dedicated group of students and faculty hired to represent you, the students. Stop by MTH-151 and tell us what's important to you and ask us all of those burning college questions, we'll point you in the right direction.
What do we do?
- ASPCC represents the voice of the students at SE Campus. By holding public Council Meetings weekly and by serving on various committees we act as a voice and a student presence where it's needed most.
- Bridges the gap between students and administrators by sitting on committees, taskforces, councils and getting involved with local organizations to advocate and represent the student body. Some examples of committees that we sit on are: Budget Planning Advisory Committee (BPAC), Educational Advisory Council (EAC), and many others. Stop by MTH-151 if your interested in learning about what committees your ASPCC Student Representatives are sitting on.
- Inform students about changes in college policy. Ex: paperless registration and deletion for non-payment.
- Supports cultural diversity, free speech, fairness and equality for all. We're a diverse campus at SE and it is ASPCC's duty to help to unite us all as a community.
- Empowers and promotes student interest and involvement through different clubs, programs and activities. Check out our Facebook page to keep updated on all the events and activities or check out the Current Events page. It is our duty and pleasure to plan, organize, and coordinate on-campus and off-campus social, recreational, and educational events. Most ASPCC events are free to students. Ex: Bicycle Fair, Movie Night, and Pizza with President.
- We serve as the bridge between students and PCC's faculty and staff in order to build a stronger feeling of community, support and understanding.
- We act as compass to campus life. We help students get oriented to the campus and services located around them.
