PCC’s Rich History in the Pueblo Community!
Pueblo Community College (PCC) traces its history to the founding of Southern Colorado Junior College (SCJC) in 1933.
- In 1937 SCJC became part of the Pueblo County Junior College District, and was renamed Pueblo Junior College.
- In 1961 the college district was dissolved by the General Assembly and the Junior College became the four-year Southern Colorado State College (SCSC).
- In the 1970s, SCSC opened a branch institution, the College for Community Services and Career Education, that in 1978 was re-organized by the General Assembly into a separate entity and renamed in 1979 to Pueblo Vocational Community College under the Colorado Community College System.
- In 1982 it was renamed to Pueblo Community College.
