Our Values

SCC's Mission, Vision, and Values

Approved by the Los Rios Community College District Board of Trustees on April 20, 2022.

Our Mission

We are the People’s College, empowering our students and community through education.

When we say “we are the People’s College,” we mean that we are an open-access college serving the Sacramento/Yolo region, welcoming anyone who wants to get a college education. We believe that education is a fundamental right that can transform lives and be a force for social change, and that this right should be made available to everyone. We provide educational opportunities that rival the quality of programs at four-year colleges and universities, and we make these opportunities affordable, accessible, and equitable to all. Whether your educational path is to transfer to a four-year institution, enter directly into the workforce, build skills to advance in your career, or engage in personal enrichment, our degree and certificate programs are designed to fulfill student goals and contribute to the vitality of our community.

Our Vision

Imagine a college where...

  • Every student feels connected.
  • We value, celebrate, and uplift each other.
  • We interrogate, disrupt, and dismantle racism and oppression.
  • We treat each other with compassion.
  • We make high-quality education and technology accessible to all.
  • We leverage innovation to create possibilities for our community.
  • We authentically engage and value the student voice.
  • We celebrate the joys of learning.
  • Every student determines their future.

We strive to be that college.

Our Values

  • Connect with each other to create change.
  • Care with courage and compassion.
