POINTS OF INTEREST
Extraordinary From nationally recognized health sciences programs to innovative classes in mechatronics and LEAN
Education training, Clark College trains skilled professionals for a 21st century workforce. Clark also partners with
organizations, including the Columbia River Economic Development Council and the Southwest Washington
Workforce Development Council, to support economic development in our region and state. Educational
partnerships with Concordia, Eastern Washington, Marylhurst and Portland State universities — and our
longtime partner WSU Vancouver — provide seamless pathways for our students to earn bachelor’s
degrees. Our unique partnerships with the Washington State School for the Deaf and the Washington State
School for the Blind, both located within walking distance of our main campus in Vancouver’s Central Park,
provide outstanding educational opportunities for students from those schools.
Engaged Learners Clark College supports lifelong learning — in the classroom and beyond. Faculty members in fields including
automotive technology, music and communications studies have been honored nationally. Clark’s chapter
of Phi Theta Kappa, the national honor society for two-year colleges; Phoenix, our student annual art and
literary publication; and The Independent, our student newspaper, regularly earn regional and national
honors. Clark also provides learning opportunities through its Diversity Center, Faculty Speaker Series, arts,
athletics, service learning and a vibrant array of multicultural events.
Enriched Community Clark is building for the future, breaking ground on a state-of-the-art STEM building on the main campus
and remodeling the culinary facility to relaunch the program in the fall of 2016. Clark College has one
of the highest Running Start program enrollments in the state. An increasingly diverse community, Clark
College students are successful when they graduate in the job market or in the many four-year colleges and
universities where we have transfer agreements.
