Portland, OR—October 2, 2018—Pacific Northwest College of Art (PNCA) is pleased to welcome Candace Horter as Vice President for Advancement. Horter has built a career contributing to the growth and success of some of Oregon's finest educational and cultural institutions.
The appointment comes at a time when the college is welcoming its largest incoming class in its nearly 110 year history, is celebrating new partnerships and programs, and has expanded the campus footprint with the new and dramatic Glass Building for sculpture as well as a planned student housing facility in the Northwest Portland.
Horter began her career working in broadcasting in Alaska, San Francisco, Washington D.C., and Connecticut. In the 1990s, she served as VP for Development at Oregon College of Art and Craft, and then held leadership roles in two historic fundraising campaigns at the University of Oregon. Most recently, she was CEO of the Cascades Region of the American Red Cross. She holds a BA in Communications from Antioch University.
“It’s significant that Candace is joining us at a time of great momentum and growth for the college,” says President Don Tuski. “We know Candace’s leadership in Advancement will support PNCA as we continue to innovate new ways of inspiring and empowering student artists and designers while at the same time continuing to make the tremendous contributions to shaping Portland as the cultural mecca that it has become.”
Students from the largest post-secondary institution in Oregon will now have easier access to a BFA from the Pacific Northwest College of Art.
Clark College and Pacific Northwest College of Art are thrilled to announce formalizing a new transfer agreement that will allow more Clark College art students access to PNCA’s high-quality BFA programs.
