Beginning in fall 2011, Portland Community College will be celebrating 50 years of service to our community.

As this important milestone approaches, we are taking the time to reflect on where the college has been over the last 50 years, where we are now, and where we're headed.

For the next year, you will have the opportunity to participate in planning the 50th anniversary by sharing your stories of PCC, voting on ideas and providing feedback on the work being done by the 50th Anniversary Planning Committee.

What is coming up next?
