Message from Yosemite Community College District Interim Chancellor
"Dream. Learn. Achieve. YCCD. . . where it happens." This is the vision for the Yosemite Community College District which is held dear by the Board of Trustees and me. It is what we try and practice as your trustees and your chancellor and what we envision for all of the students and communities served by the Yosemite Community College District and its two outstanding colleges, Modesto Junior College and Columbia College. The faculty, staff and administrators of these colleges, supported by staff and administrators from Central Services, are central to this vision – they create the learning communities where these dreams unfold, where learning happens, and where achievement of certificates and degrees is the goal. Whatever your dream, be it gaining skills to take you into a career of your choice or transferring to any college in the country – we will help you to learn and achieve, and do so at an affordable price.
We are also partners with our communities as they dream of the future they desire, as they learn as these dreams unfold and knowledge is gained, and as they achieve by making each community a better place in which to live, to work, to be.
"Dream. Learn. Achieve. YCCD. . . . where it happens."
