The Rock Creek Campus has renewed its agreement with the “I Have a Dream” Foundation and will welcome between 40 and 50 “Dreamers” to campus this fall. The college provides office space for counseling and advising for the students whose goal is to transfer to a four-year college. Since 2008, Rock Creek has hosted approximately 120 Dreamers to campus.

“Dreamers” will spend four days a week at Rock Creek. The memorandum is in place for two years with an option for renewal.

PCC offers this limited open forum as an extension of the respectful, well-reasoned discourse we expect in our classroom discussions. As such, we welcome all viewpoints, but monitor comments to be sure they stick to the topic and contribute to the conversation. We will remove them if they contain or link to abusive material, personal attacks, profanity or spam. This is the same behavior we require in our hallways and classrooms. Our online spaces are no different.
