CCC Board of Education
Clackamas Community College is governed by a seven-member Board of Education. Members, elected to four-year terms, represent each of the seven zones in the CCC College Service District. The board sets policy for the college.
The board oversees the development of programs and services, the adoption of policies and budget, to meet the needs of the college district. The board generally meets the second Wednesday of the month, except for August, during which the board does not meet. Contact the board administrator at 503-594-3012 or by email if you have a question about specific board meeting dates.
