Oregon Community College Marketing & Public Relations (OCCMPR)

Each of Oregon’s 17 independent community colleges coordinates its own marketing, communications and public relations efforts. However, the collective impact of individual community college public relations activities can be enhanced through collaboration and planning. OCCMPR is an independent network of marketing, communications and public relations professionals at the 17 community colleges in the state. Members of OCCMPR work with the OCCA, the Higher Education Coordinating Commission (HECC), the Oregon Presidents Council, the administration of the colleges, and the local governing boards to position community colleges as a vital resource in meeting the education, workforce and training needs of Oregon’s citizens.
