Peninsula College serves our rural district, spanning 3,600 square miles, with educational opportunities to attain many outcomes: an applied bachelor’s degree, associate transfer preparation, professional-technical degrees and certificates, basic skills, and community and continuing education. The college also contributes to the cultural and economic enrichment of Clallam and Jefferson counties. By offering affordable and accessible programs, Peninsula College helps people of every age and background to learn and thrive in today’s economy. Whether students are 16 or 60, just out of high school or working adults, our college prepares them for the next step up in life. As a community college that serves a large number of lower-income students and students who are the first in their families to attend college, Peninsula College is key to creating social and economic mobility for people throughout our region.

Meet Jessica Bond

Jessica Bond was nervous when she enrolled in the Cybersecurity and Computer Forensics Program at Peninsula College because she didn’t have an extensive background in technology. PC provided the encouragement and support she needed to successfully complete the program and understand the foundational complexities of technology. She started at a beginner level and graduated in June 2022 with a 4.0 GPA.

Legislative Priority: Expand Opportunity for Students and Employers

Fully funding our budget requests will have real returns for students like Jessica Bond and for the communities and employers in our area. Students will learn from competitively-paid experts who choose to work at Peninsula College rather than pursue higher paying positions with private employers or K-12 schools. Our students will train for careers in robust workforce programs, with modern equipment and learning spaces that mirror their future work environments. We will be able to expand technology to bring a college education to more people in more ways, which is especially important for working adults. And, all our students will benefit from an inclusive environment where they are valued, supported and equipped to reach their goals.

Peninsula College will also receive funding to operate and maintain existing facilities and to design and build its Advanced Technology Center.
