The mission of the SPSCC Foundation is to engage community and build resources to support success for all students.
South Puget Sound Community College sits on the traditional lands of the Medicine Creek Treaty Tribes, which include Squaxin Island and Nisqually Indian tribes. The 1854 treaty ceding these lands is still in dispute. All who are not Salish peoples are visitors here. With this awareness, we pay respect to elders past and present of the Medicine Creek Treaty Tribes and all Native peoples.
