Message from the Chancellor

BruceBaronDear Friends,

It is an honor and privilege to serve you as Chancellor of the San Bernardino Community College District. Together, we are entering the next decade more resilient and even more committed to cultivating minds and opening doors of opportunity for our next generation in Inland Southern California.

Our educational mission is now more important than ever. This isn’t a platitude. Through the day-to-day activities of our students, faculty and staff, your community college district generates a $621 million local economic impact each year.

More remarkably, when the Public Policy Institute of California conducted a statewide opinion poll asking, “Do you think that a college education is necessary for a person to be successful in today’s work world?” the Inland region ranked the highest among regions — 59 percent — to say college is necessary.

That is why we are building upon our 90-year history -- working to open our doors to more students, working to modernize our buildings and classrooms, and working with civic and business leaders to develop a highly-skilled future workforce.

I invite you to join us. As you explore this website, I hope you will consider the San Bernardino Community College District as your partner in building a prosperous future.

Onward,

Chancellor Bruce Baron
