As the largest post-secondary institution in Oregon, PCC serves approximately 90,000 full-time and part-time students. Whether training our community’s workforce, preparing students for four-year schools, or leading the way in educational success and completion, Portland Community College contributes to the region’s economic strength and prosperity.
Dr. Jeremy Brown took the reins of PCC in July 2013, becoming the 6th president in the college’s history. Now at the college for eight months, Dr. Brown will share his views on PCC’s unique role in achieving the state’s new 40-40-20 goal: By 2025, all adult Oregonians will hold a high school diploma or equivalent with 40% gaining an associate’s degree or meaningful post-secondary certificate and 40% attaining a bachelor’s degree or higher. Community colleges have a critical role to play in ensuring our state’s educational aspirations and economic vitality.
Matt Kish, a reporter at the Portland Business Journal, will interview Dr. Jeremy Brown, welcoming him to the City Club stage for the first time.
