Building Connections at CCC

Not only does Clackamas Community College build connections for our students, but we are also building connections between our actual buildings. On Jan. 19, 2021, we broke through a wall to connect our new Wacheno Welcome Center to the Bill Brod Community Center.

The new building will house most of the college’s student services, including advising, enrollment, financial aid, testing and placement services, and education partnerships.

The construction of the Wacheno Welcome Center is part of a $90-million bond voters approved in 2014. This project also includes the remodeling of the Bill Brod Community Center and is expected to be completed this summer.

To learn more about CCC’s bond projects, visit www.clackamas.edu/bondinformation. For a live webcam of construction of the Wacheno Welcome Center, visit http://dwpwebcams.com/sscc/.

Whether you want to earn a degree or certificate, get an affordable jumpstart to transfer to a four-year university, or explore other possibilities, CCC has the services and classes to get you where you want to go.

Recognized for its committed, supportive faculty and staff, CCC offers programs and services in career technical, college transfer, literacy/basic skills, community education and business training to a diverse student body totaling more than 26,000.

CCC fosters an open, collaborative decision-making process in which every voice is important. Staff, faculty and students actively contribute their views to help shape decisions and the culture of the college.
