Mission


San Joaquin Delta College is committed to excellence in the provision of postsecondary education throughout the college district. This commitment is reflected in our comprehensive instructional programs, services to students and the public, professionalism of faculty and staff, and campus beauty and utility.


A. We declare that the primary mission of Delta College is to provide rigorous, high quality degree and certificate curricula in lower division arts and sciences and in vocational, technical, and occupational fields. Our commitment is to prepare our students with the knowledge, skills, and competencies they will need to excel in their educational, professional and personal endeavors. We are equally committed to providing students a general education which will provide a cultural context for their knowledge and expand their intellectual horizons.

B. We believe that it is essential and important to our role as a community college to provide opportunities for success in postsecondary education to adults of all ages, genders, and ethnic backgrounds. The opportunity for student success extends beyond open admission to provision of effective student services and instructional support. Essential elements of this support are remedial instruction, instruction in English as a Second Language, and support services.

C. We identify as essential and important the provision of adult non-credit educational curriculum in areas defined as being in the state's interest.

D. We endorse the concept of the community college as an institution that serves in various and dynamic ways the educational, cultural, and economic needs of the community, where such activities are compatible with our primary mission.

Our student and community diversity is reflected in the faculty, staff, programs and services of the college. While Delta College is focused locally, we respond as an integral part of state, national and international communities. Our institutional effectiveness is advanced by linkages with local secondary schools and with other institutions of higher education, business, industry, and local government.

We encourage and recognize excellence: in learning as the principal pursuit of our students; in teaching as the principal pursuit of our faculty; and in serving as the principal pursuit of our administration and staff. Our commitment to quality is sustained by continuous self-renewal which enables us to be innovative, efficient and effective leaders among our peer institutions and in our community.

San Joaquin Delta College exemplifies excellence, service, innovation and leadership.
