In return, the students and attendees got a lesson in American country line dancing by an instructor. Every year, the technical college, which is Japan’s version of a community college, sends a delegation of students to PCC’s campuses to tour career-technical programs, mainly at Rock Creek and Cascade campuses. At Cascade, they learned about the Ophthalmic Medical Technology Program, and at Rock Creek students explored the farm operations and the Bioscience Technology Program.

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, off-topic items, or spam. This is the same behavior we require in our hallways and classrooms. Our online spaces are no different.
