Since 1921, San Jose City College has been meeting the educational needs of its community. Programs and services have evolved over the years in response to changes in the environment; however, the one constant has been our focus on access through an open door mission. Our Vision at SJCC is "To Inspire Success. . . One Student at a Time." The mission of SJCC is to promote social justice by providing open and equitable access to quality education and programs that both challenge and prepare individuals for successful careers and active participation in a diverse, global society. To accomplish our mission, and to move the institution into the future, we have developed a comprehensive strategic plan. Within this plan are all the elements that help us fulfill our mission, which includes the establishment of strategic goals and performance indicators, environmental scanning, resource allocation, and evaluation processes such as program reviews. See SJCC Strategic Plan 2011 - 2016 for the comprehensive plan.
San Jose City College worked with consultants from Cambridge West and HPI Architecture to develop our 2016 Educational Master Plan and Facilities Master Plan.
Throughout the planning process, in addition to scheduled meetings with workgroups and committees, there were several open forums for individuals to express their ideas and provide feedback. Please see the final SJCC Facilities Master Plan and Educational Master Plan in the Documents section below.
