As the largest post-secondary institution in Oregon, PCC serves nearly 73,000 full-time and part-time students. We offer high-quality education and opportunities for our students, which in turn contributes to the vibrancy of Portland's economic community.

We aim to educate a skilled workforce, prepare students to successfully transfer to four-year schools, enrich the community through lifelong learning, build a greener workforce and shrink our carbon footprint, and be a sound financial steward of public dollars.
