Who We Are

Located in the scenic Puget Sound area with Mount Rainier in the distance, Tacoma is the third-largest city in Washington State with a thriving and diverse community of over 200,000 residents. Tacoma Community College (TCC) was built on the ancestral territory of the Coast Salish peoples, specifically the Puyallup. The 1854 Medicine Creek Treaty forcibly removed them to the Puyallup Reservation to make way for settlers; we recognize the privilege of utilizing this land has come at great cost. We honor the resilience of the Puyallup people, who still live here, defend their rights, and contribute greatly to the well-being of this community.

As emphasized in TCC's land acknowledgment, our institution aims to increase partnerships and community ties with the local Indigenous populations. As stated in TCC's Eight Point Plan, we stand in solidarity with Black Lives Matter and the Black community by further strengthening collaboration with the Black Student Union as well as community entities such as the Tacoma-Pierce County Black Collective, the Tacoma Urban League, and local Black-owned businesses. The Library and Learning Innovation division is committed to increasing accessibility to innovative learning resources to a diverse study body and championing efforts to better serve historically marginalized and underrepresented communities.
