I am proud to personally welcome you to our incredible learning community. For 45 years, Evergreen Valley College has created a safe, dynamic and inclusive learning environment where generations of students, just like you, have been supported and mentored to achieve their educational and professional goals.
Our passion and purpose are opening the doors to higher education for those who are first in their families to attend college and everyone that has ever been told higher education isn’t for them. You’ll see our commitment to your learning and success woven through our curriculum, instruction and service to you. You’ll feel our support in the ways we challenge you to think, grow, and consider the possibilities around you. It is humbling to see how our graduates are harnessing their own passion and purpose and making an #EVCIMPACT in their own lives and in our community both locally, regionally and even worldwide.
Today our country is in upheaval as we respond to the global pandemic and the structures of racism that are pervasive in our systems and institutions. Like many of you, we are all grappling with what to do and how best to move forward. At the same time, I am clearer than ever about the importance of education and the magic that happens when a diverse community of learners come together. They find solutions, they see a future others might have never imagined, and they ultimately power us forward with the continued commitment to individual and collective growth.
This catalog gives you a roadmap to that solution, that future, and that growth. We are honored to be part of your journey.
What will your impact be?
