Umpqua Community College, located in Roseburg, Oregon, was founded in 1964 through the recommendation of a committee formed by the American Association of University Women to establish a community college in Douglas County. The agreement made resulted in the establishment of the school through the cooperation of what is now Southern Oregon University and the Oregon University System. Though classes were offered beginning in 1961, the school was formally given a college district in 1964 through voter approval. Today the school continues to grow and expand and is currently constructing a multimillion dollar viticulture facility.
