Message from Yosemite Community College District Chancellor
On behalf of the Board of Trustees, faculty, staff, and administration, it is my honor to offer you a warm welcome to the YCCD. The colleges of the YCCD, Columbia College and Modesto Junior College, provide excellent programs for our students to prepare for transfer to a university, train for in-demand jobs, and help to achieve their full educational potential through excellent teaching and support services that are widely accessible.
At YCCD, we hold true to our vision "Dream. Learn. Achieve. YCCD. . . where it happens." Our dedicated faculty, staff, and administrators at the colleges, supported by those in Central Services, are committed to excellence in serving our students and are continuously working to ensure each student has an opportunity to gain the skills and education needed to achieve their goals.
As Chancellor, I am greatly honored, humbled and appreciative of this opportunity to serve our students and communities. I look forward to working with our partners in the community to continue to advance educational opportunities for our students and their families. And, to our students, thank you for choosing the outstanding colleges within the YCCD—you are encouraged to be proactive in your education and make use of all the colleges have to offer.
YCCD—two colleges, one district, one mission: to serve you!
Henry C. V. Yong
