SRJC’s connections to the local community form the foundation of the college’s educational programs. Through partnerships with local nonprofit organizations and regional employers, the college blends instruction with community action. Students, faculty, and staff are active across the College and in the community to promote sustainable economic development, environmental education, and green jobs.
Since its founding nearly a century ago, Santa Rosa Junior College has nurtured its connection to the land and to the environment. The concerns of college faculty and staff for the global environment have fostered innovative green training programs, sustainable building operations, careful stewardship of the land, and cutting edge technology. SRJC’s history and its future are strongly tied to environmental education and to intelligent business practices.
