CCC has been recognized several times over the past few years for its efforts to support veterans and military families. These awards include the Employer Support for the Guard and Reserve. “My Boss is a Patriot” award and the ESGR “Pro-Patria” Award. The college was a finalist for the ESGR National “Freedom Award” in 2011 and has been named a GI-Jobs Military Friendly School for three consecutive years from 2010 through 2012.

Fill out CCC online survey

Clackamas Community College (CCC) is nearing its 50th year of service to the district in 2016 and the board of education is seeking input from the community to shape the future through an online survey that was launched Nov. 19.

The Imagine Clackamas survey asks community members, as well as students, what they value most about CCC and how the college can best meet training and education needs in the future. People who complete the survey will be entered into a drawing to win prizes, including an iPad, tuition waivers, theater tickets and more.

The survey will be available through Feb. 19 at clackamas.edu. Hard copies of the survey or surveys in languages other than English will be provided by calling 503-594-3015.
