Toward our Preferred Future

At the heart of PCC is a commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. These values are essential to the college’s mission – our promise that higher education and opportunity should be open to everyone in our community.

We are committed to fostering equitable student success at the college through the new Preferred Future initiative.

As part of this effort, the Office of the President has pledged to increase awareness of tools, resources, and learning opportunities with a particular focus on community-building, civic engagement, and dialogue across differences.

We at PCC acknowledge and understand that the path to success is often difficult and challenging for many of our students. We also understand that the current social-political climate in the United States has presented additional challenges and uncertainties for our current and prospective students.

The “You Belong” promise is one of many ways that we as members of the PCC community can both demonstrate and enact our commitment to all of our students and staff, especially to those who may be feeling most vulnerable.
