Who We Are

Tacoma Community College is a public two-year institution that serves a diverse population of approximately 14,000 students. We embrace our identity as a community college. Our stated mission is to create meaningful and relevant learning, inspire greater equity, and celebrate success in our lives and in our communities. Tacoma Community College is committed to recruiting faculty and staff who are reflective of the diverse community we serve. We know we can always do better in serving our students equitably and improving our students' successes. We are specifically focusing on better supporting traditionally underserved populations at TCC, including Black and brown men, Native Americans, Veterans, and the LGBTQ+ community. To this end, the college seeks applicants who will intentionally support and promote efforts related to equity, diversity, and inclusion, and who recognize and honor the important role that diversity brings to an educational community.

TCC is committed to developing and sustaining a vibrant educational environment where all students can thrive by providing educational opportunities such as learning communities, honors programming, undergraduate student research, bachelor of applied science degrees, and study abroad. TCC is committed to student success and promotes innovation to help students. TCC is one of 67 colleges selected nationally to participate in the Department of Education's Second Chance Pell pilot program, providing access to education for incarcerated individuals. Designated a Military Friendly College, TCC is proud to serve Pierce County's military community. In fall 2018, the college opened a food pantry on campus to support students experiencing food insecurity and was recognized by the Harvard Kennedy School for its College Housing Assistance Program, a community partnership that helps students access affordable housing.
