Motivated by the belief that students have the power to change the world, ORCC activates higher education toward student participation in civic life. As the only statewide organization working with private, public, four-year, and two-year institutions, ORCC embraces its unique position to strengthen Oregon’s narrative of student service and leadership.
Goal Every Oregon student will graduate as an engaged, global citizen.
How Together with campuses, we advance service, learning, and leadership in the community.
We want them to develop lifelong habits of the mind, but we also want them to develop lasting habits of the heart. Conversations about life and death, about the arts and sciences, about the economy and the environment are the fabric of the university that binds us to the civic community.” – President Father William Beauchamp, University of Portland
