"This is the saddest day in the 50 year history of UCC. Our hearts go out to every student, every employee, and every family touched by this tragedy.
"I want to thank all of our friends and neighbors who have dropped everything to help us. Over the next weeks, we will come together to accept offers of help and care so that we can assist one another."
-Dr. Rita Cavin
UCC Interim President
Umpqua Community College has touched thousands of lives for the past 50 years providing a bridge to four-year college experiences and beyond, preparing students for entry level employment, and retraining workers for new jobs. UCC has laid an important foundation for its many graduates, enabling them to become community leaders and successful professionals in their chosen field.
With a purpose to reunite former students with the College and with one another, to provide alumni services, and to involve them with the institution's future in teaching, lifelong learning and service to the community, the UCC Alumni Association was established during UCC's 40th anniversary year. During this significant milestone year, the Association began recruiting membership and providing social activities for its members while working with the College and current students on a variety of activities that include fundraising, scholarships, athletics, special events, and more.
We invite you to become an active member of the Alumni Association. It will be both rewarding and enjoyable to have you involved once again as we plan and develop new endeavors for our future in continued support of the role and mission of Umpqua Community College.
