Photos and Story by James Hill
Portland Community College and Oregon Institute of Technology signed a dual enrollment agreement on Tuesday, Nov. 18. Chris Maples (left), president of Oregon Institute of Technology, exchanged school-logo shirts with Preston Pulliams, PCC president, in honor of the signing. On Tuesday, the presidents penned the agreement that will help hundreds of students seeking technical careers make the transition from PCC to OIT.
The agreement will make it possible for students to be co-enrolled in both schools, improve success and retention, increase enrollment and the number of graduations, use resources of both institutions more effectively, and expand options and access for students. In addition, PCC already has dual enrollment agreements with: Portland State University; Oregon State University; Concordia University; Western Governors University; Marylhurst University; and Linfield College.
