The Rock Creek Campus is about 12 miles west of downtown Portland in the growing Beaverton-Hillsboro area. Rock Creek classes frequently use the neighboring farm and wetland areas as outdoor learning labs. The campus houses the Tualatin Hills Parks and Recreation’s sports complex, and is also home to a fully functioning farm with sheep, rabbits, llamas and cows. Rock Creek served 23,631 students in the 2014-15 academic year, and is led by Campus President Dr. Sandra Fowler-Hill.
