Central Oregon Community College campus population has exploded over the past several years as out of work people have opted to expand their education. This is evident with the opening of new satellite campuses in Madras and Prineville. Matt McCoy, Vice President of Administration with COCC says they are even anticipating further expansions: “We're continuing to look at services both in La Pine and Sisters, and in Sunriver as well. And the long-term plan would be that when the communities and the demand in the communities identify locations, we would then look for a place where we could build a permanent facility, as we have done in madras and as we have done in Prineville." McCoy says they are always looking to expand programs on all their campuses and team up with other colleges or universities to give Central Oregon some of the best educational opportunities.
