Welcome to Clatsop Community College! The 2016-2017 academic year is an excellent time to explore all that CCC has to offer. Our programs provide opportunities to develop your critical thinking and problem solving abilities; they can provide you the skills to help prepare you for a career while at the same time providing you a strong foundation to continue your education. Our faculty and staff are dedicated to providing rigorous academic experiences that will provide challenges to spur you academic and personal growth.
We are a college that values our commitment to serving students, that trait is a defining characteristic of our campus culture and continues to drive us as we seek innovative ways to teach and learn with our students. One tangible sign of our commitment to our students and our community is the approximately 36,000 square foot Patriot Hall Redevelopment Project on our Lexington Avenue Campus, where thanks to the generous support of the citizens of Clatsop County, CCC will be well positioned to expand current curricula as well as offer new programs and experiences. Our South County Campus in Seaside continues to seek ways to serve our citizens by providing programing and opportunities focused on the economic needs of our community. Programs at our MERTS Campus continue to grow attracting students from all across the country providing training and education that lead to rewarding careers.
This will be my first year as President at Clatsop and I am so excited for you to be part of my new family here at CCC. This is an amazing institution and I encourage you to get involved in all that CCC has to offer, not only the academic experiences, but also the service opportunities and social activities that make this a truly special college. Be part of the CCC family and find out how you can make a difference by discovering what passions drive you forward and see where the journey takes you. I look forward to seeing you on campus this year.
