Central Oregon Community College (COCC) is the oldest two-year college in Oregon, providing comprehensive educational services to a district covering 10,000-square-miles. COCC has a main campus in Bend, a vibrant and attractive community of more than 90,000 residents. In addition, COCC operates satellite centers in the cities of Redmond, Madras and Prineville. Last year, COCC served nearly 16,000 students in credit and noncredit programs.

In its nearly 70-year history, COCC has had only five presidents, most serving for ten years or more. A seven-member, locally-elected governing Board of Directors recently approved the 2018-23 Strategic Plan, which aligns with the College’s mission, values, vision and themes, and defines a set of institutional goals for continued improvement in College operations. The College is on a sound financial footing, the result of strategic and conservative fiscal-management practices.

COCC seeks a passionate and innovative leader who will promote student success, is dedicated to the community college mission, and will make a long-term commitment to the region.
