Spokane Falls Community College, part of the Community Colleges of Spokane, opened in 1967 in west Spokane, south of Riverside State Park, on a 113-acre (0.46 km2) campus.

SFCC offers programs for students seeking an associate degree, with some 66 percent of SFCC students preparing to transfer to four-year institutions. SFCC also offers a number career-technical degree and certificate programs, including orthotic/prosthetic technician, hearing instrument specialist, physical therapist assistant, and occupational therapy assistant. SFCC also is considered a center of visual and performing arts, with highly regarded programs in drama, music, fine art, photography and graphic design. The campus has a close working relationship with the Mukogawa Fort Wright Institute, a higher education facility for students from Japan studying in the U.S. and also has education centers at Fairchild Air Force Base and in Pullman, Wash.

The college publishes The Communicator, a bi-weekly student newspaper, as well as Communicator Online. The latter was a 2009 Associated Collegiate Press Online Pacemaker winner and has placed among the top ten two-year college newspapers in North America in the last four years.[citation needed]
