Photos and Story by

The Grants Office announced a two-year award of $32,634 from the Oregon University System to the Sylvania Machine Manufacturing Technology program.

In collaboration with Mt. Hood Community College and the Manufacturing 21 Coalition, the Machine Manufacturing program will host the “Manufacturing Road Trip”, a series of field trips for high school students to regional community colleges and manufacturing sites in Oregon. These road trips will demonstrate career pathways for students and also educate teachers and counselors on how to support student success in related pathways.

Other grants:

  • PCC was awarded $12,160 from the Oregon State Library for the PCC Library and partners. This grant, under the Library Services and Technology Act, will enhance the NW Continuing Education Network of Training Resources for All Libraries (NW CENTRAL), which serves as a clearinghouse for library continuing education in Oregon and SW Washington.
  • The college also received $17,500 from Campus Compact for the Inspiring Philanthropy’s Future program. This project will provide a cross-disciplinary and service-learning opportunity for PCC students by allowing them to distribute a $15,000 charitable gift fund to non-profits.
