Portland Community College is Oregon’s number one gateway to higher education and lifelong learning. As the region’s largest post-secondary institution, PCC serves some 70,000 learners a year across a 1,500-square-mile district. Integrated planning activities across the college help ensure that long-term decision-making is strategic, inclusive and mission-focused. These efforts reflect a larger intention at PCC to create a culture of planning and innovation.

A number of integrated projects are currently under way as part of long-term planning efforts:

Strategic Planning

PCC published a strategic vision that has become the college’s overall map for ongoing planning and strategic actions.

Facilities Planning

This process launched in fall 2016 to provide a comprehensive framework for assessing PCC’s built environment and linking future capital and maintenance needs with strategic goals. The resulting plan will inform accreditation reporting as well as future infrastructure investment.

Academic and Student Affairs Planning

This broad-based, collaborative effort will provide an ongoing process for understanding current and future strengths and needs. The resulting roadmap will ensure continuous improvement of academic programs and services in support of PCC’s mission and strategic plan.


Kickoff activities: October 2016

During multiple collaborative sessions, leaders and stakeholders together articulated this effort's goals, process and timeline. The plan will incorporate department and service area input with recommendations from PCC work groups and task forces as well as statewide groups. It will take into account governance and funding factors and requirements, accreditation standards and self-study results as well as student and community feedback.

2020 Climate Action Plan

PCC has made significant strides in our climate action progress and now it is time to update our 2013 Climate Action Plan (CAP). In addition to building off the progress we have already made, the updated 2020 Climate Action Plan will advance climate justice by setting science-based targets for carbon neutrality, addressing local inequities exacerbated by climate change, emphasizing resiliency, and centering equity both in the engagement process and mitigation strategies.
