The District Student Council represents the student voice at the district level. The District Student Council are dedicated to enriching the lives of all Portland Community College Students and community members. Our mission is to unify the Associated Students of Portland Community College at each of our four comprehensive campuses – Cascade, Rock Creek, Southeast, and Sylvania – to collaborate on district-wide initiatives that address cultural and institutional barriers that would prevent any student from achieving their educational goals.
We aim to create an institutional precedent where all students have equitable access to higher education attainment without discrimination. We empower students to speak up and speak out on issues of equity, sustainability, financial insecurity, and college affordability. If you have a concern or a question relating to student life at PCC, please contact one of our members. We are here to support you.

Four Campuses. Four ASPCCs!

Each PCC Campus has its own unique ASPCC (Associated Students of Portland Community College) leadership program. All ASPCCs represent and serve all students of their Campus and will, therefore, design activities, events, policies, and programs directed toward meeting their own goals.

ASPCC aims to improve the lives of students, staff, faculty and our community. Our goals are in the areas of governance and programs by empowering and promoting student interest and involvement.

Do you need student representation?

Portland Community College’s academic and student affairs policies have a significant impact on students’ experiences at PCC and are crucial to the College’s retention and completion goals. To provide the administration, faculty, and staff with their viewpoint, it is important for students to contribute to policy making. In addition to providing important input for the College, participation in the policy-making process provides students with invaluable learning experiences.

Therefore, in accordance with policy S705 any entity that recommends, formulates, or reviews academic or student affairs policies that impact the entire district is required to have student representation. The level of participation for the student representative is governed by the entities’ governing rules. These entities are to contact the DSC to request student representation.

Entities that address issues or topics not related to academic or student affairs at a district level are not covered by S705. However, ASPCC strongly encourages these entities to include student representation.

Campus entities that do not have governing rules regarding student representation are also encouraged to include a student voice.

To meet the requirements outlined in S705, and to facilitate entities not covered, entities are requested to fill out the designated form online, contact the DSC Vice Chair, or the respective campus student body president.

For questions regarding district entities please contact the DSC Vice Chair; for questions regarding a campus specific entity, please contact the respective campus student government president.

Students who are interested in serving on a PCC Committee or other entity that recommends, formulates, or reviews policies please contact the district or campus representative.
