President's Office

Dr. Debra ThatcherDear Umpqua Community College Community,

It is with great excitement that I welcome you to the start of Fall Term! I’m looking forward to continuing my service as the president of Umpqua Community College as we begin what’s shaping up to be a great year.

Since my arrival in Oregon on July 1st, everyone on campus and in the community has welcomed me. Douglas County is a very special place. I have been struck by the kindness, compassion and support for UCC and our mission. It has quickly become apparent that we are strong, resilient community that truly believes in the value of higher education. I am eager for the College to provide educational opportunities for even more residents of Douglas County and to bolster economic development in the area.

I have been busy this summer getting acquainted with the community and everyone on campus. Meeting members of the UCC and Douglas County communities has helped me learn more about what matters to everyone in the area and what the expectations are for UCC. We call ourselves, “the community’s college” and I can see how true that is. I look forward to meeting more of you as the year gets underway!

It is a privilege to be associated with a college that has made a significant difference in the lives of so many people. We will build upon the resolve and imagination exhibited by the strong and talented members of our community to continually improve students’ experiences and to serve the needs of the county, region, and state.

Here’s to a great year!

Warm regards,

Dr. Debra Thatcher
President, UCC
