With the 2022-23 school year beginning, I find myself optimistic about the future for SRJC and our many students. Over the last couple of years, our entire community has faced unprecedented challenges brought on by a once-in-a-lifetime pandemic. We all had to adapt to new ways of learning, teaching, working and socializing. I’m happy to say that in fall 2022, we will offer thousands of in-person and online courses and services and greater opportunities to experience the vibrant on-campus SRJC activities we all so enjoy.

And while the pandemic has certainly been challenging for us all, I am proud of the efforts of our dedicated faculty, staff and administrators, who stepped up to support students in their time of need. We have continued to provide educational opportunities and resources to our students, worked tirelessly to return to campus safely and throughout the last couple of years, we have continued construction work on Measure H projects. When you return to campus, you’ll be welcomed by upgraded, world-class facilities, state-of-the-art labs, new athletic fields and modern classrooms and technology. Please pardon our dust as we have a number of projects underway, including the Lindley Center for STEM Education and our student housing project, which is slated to open in fall 2023.

No matter what our community may face, we at SRJC are here for our students and we have the resources available to help you continue to pursue your dreams of higher education. You can do this. We’re here to help.

I look forward to seeing you on campus. I wish you all the best and a year of great success!
