Student, staff safety is priority one for college

Photos and Story by

Portland Community College has taken actions to increase the safety of students, staff and faculty. The moves were in response to last spring’s shootings at Virginia Tech. To review all of the changes and updates, please check out District President Preston Pulliam’s letter to the PCC community.

There have been some delays experienced with FlashAlert messages. These arise from interactions with the Internet service providers. The college will continue to explore additional ways of getting emergency messages to as many people as possible in a timely manner. To sign up for FlashAlert messages, visit the Closure Information page.

The bond measure program under consideration by the PCC Board of Directors includes funds for security updates, such as electronic key card systems to unlock doors and to better manage access to PCC facilities. If you have any questions about safety on campus, please check out Public Safety’s web page.
