PCC’s Student Resource Guide -OUTDATED-
EDIT: This resource guide was made in 2018 and is largely outdated, especially in the light of current campus closures, and was included by accident in a recent mailer. For more current guides to resources available through PCC, visit:
Look for The Bridge to publish a current up to date resource guide we’ve compiled in the next week!
PCC offers students many resources that are funded directly by students through the Student Activity Fee. Resource Centers like the DREAM Center can offer students who use them guidance and support in the many facets of their lives. Many of the Resource Centers have varied hours of operation, so it is best to consult the center on your campus for the best time to stop in. What follows is a short list of the services offered, campus locations, and points of contact. You pay for it (and for The Bridge) so make use of them!
Women’s Resource Center: Offers a range of programs and services that vary by campus. Trained, certified Confidential Advocates are available to support students affected by relationship and/or sexual violence, harassment, or stalking. Free academic success programs that earn you college credits (taught fully in Spanish as well), a safer community space, free Safer Sex Supplies, and free Menstrual Hygiene Supplies are added perks, to name a few.
