President's Office

Welcome to Modesto Junior College.  Our College has been serving Modesto and the surrounding communities for 98 years.  Over that period, we have been a beacon of hope and a source of encouragement for our students and our community. Our campus is committed to access to higher education with a student first philosophy, with outstanding faculty and staff committed to helping you achieve your dreams and your educational goals.  You will experience an environment that is intellectually sound, innovative, socially responsible, and alert to change; and that is recognized for excellence in preparing students for their place in society and prepared for the future.

Our Colleges understands the struggles that many of you face for a better life for yourself, your family, and your community.  The journey to a degree or certificate begins with the first step, with many to follow.  Harriet Tubman once said “Every great dream begins with a dreamer.  Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.” Her words are for our students to take to heart and to stay focused on your dream and persist to completion.  And Modesto Junior College will be with you every step of the way.
