Umpqua Community College
Umpqua Community College (UCC) is committed to creating a college-wide culture of evidence that supports working with students to help them achieve their educational goals. UCC is engaging in the work of Achieving the Dream to collect data to enhance and guide the work UCC's current initiatives. This will assist the college in determining ways that it might improve and better integrate their efforts. UCC hopes to expand the range of options available to students to better ensure their persistence and completion, and to develop, inform, and deepen campus conversations about student success.
Nestled among tree covered hills and overlooking a bend in the North Umpqua River in southwestern Oregon, UCC serves nearly 20,000 students annually. UCC provides accessible and affordable quality college education, life-long learning opportunities, workforce training, and cultural programs for the entire community. The college was founded in 1964.
The district served by UCC has 104,059 residents within the 5,071 square mile area of Douglas County (roughly the size of Connecticut). Under the Medicare/Medicaid categorization rules, Douglas County is classified “super rural,” isolated, and economically distressed. The city of Roseburg is the largest population center (pop. 21,255); a sizeable majority of County residents live in towns with populations of fewer than 4,000 residents, or in the rural, unincorporated areas between these small towns.
