There is an air quality alert in effect for the Portland area. Due to poor air quality, those with heart and lung disease are advised to limit outdoor activities and stay indoor as much as possible. If you have heart or lung disease such as congestive heart failure, angina, COPD, emphysema, or asthma, you are at higher risk of having health problems from smoke.

 If you are at risk for health problems due to the smoke, please call the HCC for advice: 503-777-7281. Students who would like a mask to help limit particulate inhalation, can come to the HCC.

 All students should:

  • Pay attention to air quality reports and watch for news related to air quality and health concerns
  • Stay indoors as much as you can. Ensure that the indoor air is clean by closing all windows and running an air conditioner if you have access to one.  Avoid burning candles and refrain from smoking
  • Follow your disease management plans, keep medications on hand and contact health care providers if indicated

Diversity Mission Statement

The HCC embraces the inherent value of diversity and endeavors to promote a safe environment that respects and upholds the dignity and civil rights of all persons. We acknowledge the injustice and profound impact of discrimination and marginalization of individuals and groups. We strive to promote students’ ongoing academic, personal, and multicultural growth. We welcome dialogue of varying perspectives as we continue to expand our self-awareness and understanding of how diversity influences concepts of a holistic health and wellness practice.
