Solano Community College
Solano Community College’s mission is to educate a culturally and academically diverse student population, drawn from our local communities and beyond. We are committed to helping our students achieve their educational, professional and personal goals centered in basic skills education, workforce development and training, and transfer-level education. The College accomplishes this three-fold mission through its dedicated teaching, innovative programs, broad curricula, and services that are responsive to the complex needs of all students.
The Students We Serve and Our Commitment to Equity
A critical aspect of fulfilling our mission hinges on understanding the multifaceted needs of the students we serve. The Solano Community College District serves 9,702 students (as of Fall 2013) across its campus and centers at Fairfield, Vacaville, Vallejo, and Travis Air force Base, and in surrounding communities including Winters, Dixon, Benicia, and Suisun City. The College is home to an incredibly diverse, talented and hard working student body. Many of our students are low income, and many balance multiple jobs along with educational commitments and family life. A significant number of our students are learning English as a second language, are recent immigrants, have limited academic skills, or may be the first in their family to go to college. At the same time, we also serve students who are prepared for university or already hold university degrees, have held successful careers, and are seeking job training for new career paths. With Travis Air Force Base located within miles of the main campus in Fairfield, we also serve a significant number of military members, veterans and their families. Our challenge is to engage this diverse student body, meet their wide-ranging needs, offer a broad curriculum, and support robust student life.
Diversity and equity are integral to Solano Community College’s (SCC’s) identity. We are committed to ensuring that initiatives are in place to provide teaching and learning environments that are inclusive and welcoming to all students, regardless of ethnicity, culture, nationality, language, gender, sexual orientation, disability, or religion. This commitment is emphasized through SCC’s overarching mission and values, and through the strategies presented in the Educational Master Plan. The strategies outlined in the Plan seek to increase diversity and equity, improve student access to programs and services, close performance gaps, and improve the overall success of all students.
