We believe in PCC
No other institution is as vital to the educational success of Oregon than Portland Community College. As the PCC Marketing and Communications Department, our mission is to generate revenue for the college and further awareness about the people, places, and programs that make us great.
Our priorities are student recruitment, government relations, donor relations, and college-wide initiatives.
We also offer guidelines, tools, and services to help you meet your communication goals. Use this site as a resource to help you communicate on behalf of the college.
Learn more about PCC’s brand elements – from our iconic turquoise diamond to our approachable photography and lovable mascot. Brush up on our logo guidelines, learn more about the college’s registered logos, and download the files you need for your next project.
If you already know what you need but can’t find it in the DIY templates and tools, no need to worry. Our team produces marketing materials, digital campaigns, video and audio resources (and more!) to further the college’s mission. Please submit a project request via one of the options below.
