Marty was introduced by Poulsbo Rotarian Tom Eckmann, who has recently been appointed to the college Board of Trustees.
OC has three campuses in Shelton, Poulsbo, and Bremerton, plus they have classes within Puget Sound Naval Shipyard (PSNS). Enrollment is currently down a bit at 11,000 due to the good job market. Enrollment will increase when we have a downturn in the economy. Of those 11,000 students:
  • 20% are economically disadvantaged 
  • 20% are first generation 
  • 5% are homeless 
  • 30% are food insecure 
  • 1,000 are veterans 
  • 90% of graduates remain in the area 
The workforce is changing. 740,000 jobs will be added to the economy in 2021, and 80% will require a post-secondary degree. The college and community have several programs to support students with the goal of graduation: 
  • Graduate strong is a cross-county initiative to increase college enrollment and completion 
  • Achieving the Dream is a new program to provide free college for low income students 
  • Guided Career Pathways helps students identify their goal and develop a path to attain those goals, including sequenced coursework 
Western Washington University and OC are working to strengthen their connection, including plans for: 
  • A seamless pathway from OC to WWU 
  • New buildings 
  • A residence hall in the future 
  • A shared director position
