Office of Government Relations

Capitol and bus

Part of College Advancement, this district office directs government advocacy on the city, state and federal levels on behalf of Portland Community College. This includes welcoming legislators to campus and events, advocating for community college funding from the legislature, and bringing students to the state Capitol to support affordable tuition and other important policy issues.

In addition, the Government Relations Office organizes the “Day at the Capitol,” where students, staff, faculty and administrators share their “PCC story” with legislators and thank them for investing in higher education. This office also runs the Denise Frisbee Legislative Intern Program, which gives students interested in public policy the opportunity to work side-by-side with the Government Relations Director in Salem to further the college mission.
