• President's Office 

    Joanne Truesdell portrait CCC's President, Dr. Joanne Truesdell, knows first-hand how Clackamas Community College can launch a career. Joanne Truesdell returned to Clackamas Community College as president in 2007 after beginning her academic career as a student at CCC in the early 1980s. She has more than 30 years’ experience in Oregon community college leadership as a student, staff, faculty member, and administrator .

    Dr. Truesdell’s knowledge of Oregon's educational opportunities deepened as she earned degrees from Portland State University, the University of Portland, and a doctorate in education from Oregon State. Her career path took her from work in Career Development, Admissions, and in the Veterans Services/Students with Disabilities Office at CCC to several leadership positions. At Portland Community College, Joanne was first the director of the Family Resource Center and then director of Enrollment Services. She went on to become dean of Student Development at Chemeketa Community College, where she then moved on to serve as Executive Dean.

    Dr. Truesdell gained workforce expertise during her service as Deputy Commissioner/Deputy Director for the state agency responsible for workforce development. Her understanding of workforce development has had a direct impact on CCC's programs, and has positioned the college to be especially effective in addressing student needs in difficult economic times.

    At CCC, Dr. Truesdell has led the college through some of the most challenging times for education in recent history. Facing both budgetary challenges and new direction and expectations from the state, she provides thoughtful leadership that never loses sight of what is best for students and the community. Under Dr. Truesdell’s leadership, CCC is an established partner in economic development in the region by integrating workforce and college services, serving more than 20,000 newly unemployed workers with Rapid Response transition services, earning national recognition for work around veterans’ reintegration, and partnering with the CCC Foundation to develop and award more than $500,000 in scholarships each year.

    Devoted to providing the best educational opportunities for the community CCC serves, Dr. Truesdell brings an intimate understanding of how all the complex parts of a quality learning environment come together to produce great results.
