Southwestern Oregon Community College
Already, Southwestern Oregon Community College (SWOCC) has begun the process of institutional transformation by undertaking a redesign of math and writing gateway courses and developing and enhancing programs to improve retention rates.
Working with Achieving the Dream will further strengthen the college’s institutional change efforts by:
- Assisting the college in developing strong instructional leadership, further helping faculty improve current curricula
- Establishing institution-wide processes for gathering and analyzing data to inform decision making processes
Located two miles from the Pacific Ocean, SWOCC has served Oregon’s south coast region since 1961. SWOCC advances the educational and cultural needs of its students and communities by providing access to quality education in a professional and engaging environment which supports innovation, sustainability and lifelong enrichment. The college offers 34 degree and certificate programs and 15 pathways certificates.
In 2010, SWOCC served more than 10,200 students, with a full-time equivalent enrollment of nearly 3,400. Females made up 56% of the student body.
