Economic Contribution of Clatsop Community College

Clatsop Community College is a public, two-year institution serving northwest Oregon and southwest Washington since 1958. Since its founding, CCC has generated a wide array of benefits for students and the community. Those benefits represent the return on investment that students, their families, and the local community make in the educational opportunities provided by CCC.

In 2023, the college received the results of a new, independent economic impact study conducted by Lightcast that documents the significant role that Clatsop Community College plays in the local economy. This study updates the results of  similar studies that were conducted in 2012 and 2006, and was commissioned by the Oregon Community College Association.
