Welcome to the Oregon Community College Association

The Oregon Community College Association (OCCA) represents the seventeen publicly chartered community colleges and their locally elected board members. Founded in 1962, OCCA is an association whose purpose is to support the colleges before policy-makers and partners whose actions affect the well-being of community colleges across the state.

Leading with racial equity, we advocate, communicate, and collaborate to strengthen community colleges for the benefit of Oregonians, particularly those historically underserved or systemically marginalized in higher education.

Unfortunately, we also had to say goodbye to Suzette Boydston , whose last day as our statewide affinity coordinator is today. We are so thankful for everything Suzette has done for OCCA and our colleges! See MoreSee Less
