San Jose City College Named One of the NATION'S Top 25 Colleges for Latinos. 

SAN JOSE, Calif., (May 14, 2015) – Latino Magazine, a national publication based in Austin, Texas, has named San José City College (SJCC) one of the country's top 25 colleges for Latinos. The publication cited SJCC as a "world-class institution" located in the heart of Silicon Valley, known around the world as the center for innovation in technology and research.

SJCC, the only community college, in California, represented on the list, was accompanied by other reputable institutions such as  Stanford University, UCLA, UC Berkeley and UC Davis.

"Our mission is to serve our region as a whole and prepare students to capitalize on the extraordinary career opportunities in the Silicon Valley," said SJCC President Byron Clift Breland. "We are proud to be recognized among such prestigious institutions, especially for our service to our Latino students and community, who comprise such a large segment of the Silicon Valley's population, yet far too small a proportion of corporate suites and Board rooms. Our faculty and staff are determined to see that change by providing career training and opportunities to those who have historically lacked such access and, in the process, pave the way for greater equity in our region's economy."

As one of the oldest community colleges in California, SJCC has served as an invaluable stepping stone for hundreds of thousands of South Bay residents aiming to further their educational and career goals. By offering a number of degree and certificate programs, as well as a pipeline to four-year universities, SJCC has helped fuel Silicon Valley's economy by providing locally grown and trained workers to support each successive waive of technological innovation.
