Prince George’s Community College opened its doors in 1958 with an ambitious mission: to make higher education and economic mobility accessible for all who desired to learn, including individuals who had historically been left out of the narrative. Our institution was founded on the principle that everyone carries value regardless of their background and has something important to contribute to society.
Fast forward to today, and Prince George’s Community College’s mission endures, with thousands of students and counting who have experienced the transformative power of higher education at PGCC. Higher education is a national unifier. It opens doors, dismantles barriers, and changes trajectories —revealing the limitless potential we have to better ourselves and the world around us.
