Portland Community College’s student government boasts some forty campus-based student organizers, spread across PCC’s four main campuses — Cascade, Sylvania, Southeast and Rock Creek. Each campus has its own student government, called ASPCC (short for the Associated Students of Portland Community College). And each ASPCC team has its own Executive Team, which is made up of the Student Body President, the Director of Legislative Affairs, the Director of Student Programs/Events, and the Eco Social Justice Director. Together, the Executive Team members from those four campuses — with the exception of the Director of Student Programs/Events — form the twelve voting members of the District Student Council (DSC). The DSC is supported by the Chair and the Chief of Staff, who are non-voting members and make up the District Executive Team.

Committee Student Representation
If your committee would like a student representative, please fill out the Student Representation Request Form. The request will be sent to the District Student Council Chief of Staff, who will relay the request to DSC. Campus committee requests will go to the appropriate campus Student Body President. If yours is a district committee, the request will be brought to the District Student Council’s attention, who will select and vote on which student will serve on the committee.
In accordance with policy S705, any committee that recommends, formulates, or reviews academic or student affairs policies that impact the district is required to have student representation. The level of participation for the student representative is governed by the committee’s governing rules. Please be clear about committee expectations in your request form.
If you are a student seeking to sit on a district committee or have any questions or concerns, please contact the District Student Council Chair.

Four Campuses, Four ASPCC’s!
Each PCC Campus has its own unique leadership program. All ASPCC’s represent and serve all students at their campuses and will, therefore, design activities, events, policies, and programs aimed at meeting their own campus-specific goals.
ASPCC aims to improve the lives of students, staff, faculty and the surrounding community. Our goals in governance and programming intend to empower and promote student interest and involvement.
