Message from the Chancellor

Join a team steeped in the 21st Century. Our District is undergoing tremendous transformation fueled by the visionary actions of a Board of Trustees and the contributions of faculty and staff that share common values centered in equity, opportunity and social justice. We clearly acknowledge our responsibility to create a setting supported by a culture of civility and mutual respect. We believe that student success is not a destination but a journey to which we all contribute, and we accept fully the importance of creating a culture that provides academic and student support services that "wrap around" the student. We embrace the social and economic development mission of community colleges as we meet the education and workforce needs of the greater Silicon Valley. If the Silicon Valley is synonymous with the future, the San Jose/Evergreen Community College District is synonymous with access to that future through educational opportunity. Consider making a difference in the future.
