Portland Community College

Portland Community College is the largest institution of higher learning in the state, serving more than 1,373,758 college-age residents in a five-county, 1,500-squaremile area in northwest Oregon. During the 2006-2007 school year over 86,164 students (58% female, 42% male) attended PCC. Part of a vibrant, urban community, Portland Community College is a crossroads for people with many destinations. This diversity is vital to the PCC experience.

The 94,000-square-foot Southeast Center opened to students in 2004 after moving from its old location a few blocks away. Located in the growing Southeast Portland area, the modern facility was built with bonds approved by district residents in 2000. A rich blend of culture, tradition and recent immigrant populations is reflected in the community the center serves, including a growing number of Vietnamese, Chinese, Korean, Latino, Russian and Ukrainian families.

The Southeast Center is an active partner with local neighborhood associations and cultural groups. Every February, the center hosts an Asian New Year celebration that attracts hundreds of attendees. The center also has a presence in the annual 82nd Avenue of Roses Parade, which passes by the facility every spring.
