Portland Community College Unveils Strategic Plan


Community colleges are among the most tangible assets of a healthy community, and to retain their pivotal role, they need a strong, visionary strategic plan. A strategic plan is a blueprint for the future, a set of agreed upon priorities that are intended to propel an organization forward with robust and bold plans for the future.

For more than a year, amidst a global pandemic, remote operations, racial unrest, and regional wildfires, ISA worked closely with Portland Community College (PCC) to develop a strategic plan for the college. This plan has been reinforced by input and participation from the PCC community.

It has evolved into a document that consists of four major strategic areas of focus and 20 individual initiatives. In November of 2020, PCC’s elected Board of Directors approved the final draft of the college’s new strategic plan.

As the largest post-secondary institution in Oregon, PCC serves over 60,000 full-time and part-time students. PCC offers high-quality education and opportunities for our students, which in turn contributes to the vibrancy of Portland’s economic community. Four comprehensive campuses, eight centers and dozens of independent locations throughout the community offer courses and provide student services. Online Learning gives students the ability to take classes off campus.
