Brookings, OR – Southwestern Oregon Community College invites Curry County residents to a community forum to help shape the future of education and job training in the region. 

The event will be held from 2-4 pm, Monday, July 25, 2022 at the Curry Campus, 96082 Lone Ranch Parkway, north of Brookings. College staff wants to hear from people of all ages to gather ideas that will help determine the vision for the campus and college programs and services in Curry County. 

College president Dr. Patty Scott and Vice President of Instruction Dr. Ali Mageehon will highlight recent Curry Campus initiatives. Southwestern also has an opportunity to expand its footprint at the campus and continue to develop educational programs that respond to needs today, and as communities evolve in the future.

“We want to hear from the community how the college can best support Curry County residents and local businesses through education and training,” President Scott said. “How are industries changing? What new jobs might be coming? Also, how can we make college more accessible to students and meet their needs?” 

The Curry Campus was built in 2012 and is located just off U.S. Highway 101 at 96082 Lone Ranch Parkway in Brookings. The campus currently offers GED classes, short-term training, university transfer degrees and community education classes.
