Today Portland Community College (PCC) launched a survey seeking input from students, staff, faculty, and the community regarding the college’s four campuses. The survey results, coupled with feedback received from online workshops, will help shape the facilities plan, guiding the future investment and priorities over the next ten to twenty years.
James Hill, the PCC Public Relations Manager, explained that they are interested in hearing from all people who interact with the campus, including neighbors. “In addition to ensuring the physical space supports the communities we serve, we are also interested in input to help PCC provide a more welcoming and inclusive place to learn, teach, work, and visit.”
The online Visioning Workshop for Montavilla’s Southeast Campus is scheduled for Thursday, April 22. It begins at 9:00 AM and runs through 10:30 AM. You can Register on Zoom for the meeting. However, Hill encourages residents of the neighborhood to participate via the online survey, which is available at the project website www.pcc.edu/fp2. Questions will ask for priorities regarding buildings and the outdoor areas with a focus on increased accessibility.
When all the data is collected, PCC will share the results via the project website, providing a summary of what they gathered at the campus workshops and through the survey. Participant’s input will inform the planning team while they draft recommendations for future development at each campus. Later this year, PCC will seek community input again on draft recommendations and ideas through another online survey. The team will refine the proposed plans based on community input and publish a final report at the end of 2021.
