• To the Community

    Joanne Truesdell portraitClackamas Community College recently completed a year-long community engagement process we call Imagine Clackamas. Maybe you are one of more than 2,000 people who completed our online survey, took part in an interview or participated in a business focus group.

    We learned a lot about what the community values in CCC. First and foremost, our community looks to us to gain the education and skills to make a career. When asked what people valued most about CCC, here are the top five answers:

    • Degrees and certificate programs that lead to careers
    • Education that leads to a four-year degree
    • Classes and workshops that improve job skills and support career advancement
    • Classes that lead to GED,  high school diplomas, and related adult basic skill offerings, such as English as a Second Language (ESL)
    • Training opportunities for businesses, career coaching, retraining, and credit for work-based experience

    We also learned what the greatest barriers are for people to attend CCC: financial, transportation, and access to information. Our community told us they would like to see modernized facilities and equipment, as well as improved safety features on our campuses.

    A finding we're proud of: 84 percent of you say we're doing a great job!

    CCC is nearing its 50th year of service in 2016. We will take the lessons learned from Imagine Clackamas to chart a course for the future that addresses the barriers facing our students today.
