Land Acknowledgement

We are on indigenous land

South Puget Sound Community College is located on the ancestral lands of the Steh-Chass band of the Squaxin Island Tribe and Nisqually Indian Tribe, who have long been stewards of the region’s waters, plants, and animals. The southernmost point of the Salish Sea, these lands were—and still are—a place of gathering, trade, and community for many Coast Salish peoples. We recognize that all who are not Salish peoples are visitors here. We commit to join these peoples to share their history, build relationships, increase representation, and restore the living world around us.

Student Success Stories

EJ Frazier came to SPSCC in his thirties to get ready for a career he’s always wanted: Automotive Technology. “Life is full of transitions and embracing them in a positive way can be difficult,” EJ said. “Not only has SPSCC helped me through the toughest transitions in my life, but the faculty and staff have also given me the necessary tools to move forward in my career and life with confidence.”

Mariah Slack is a student at SPSCC pursuing an Associate in Arts. She has a genetic deletion condition known as Williams syndrome (WS). Only 3% of people diagnosed with WS graduate from high school. Of that 3%, only 1% go on to college. Mariah has never let these odds get in the way of continuing her education.
