Our Mission Statement

The mission of Woodland Community College is to provide high quality, student-centered education and lifelong learning opportunities for the communities we serve.

At WCC, students pursue their educational goals in an environment that values diversity, individuality, mutual respect, civic responsibility, and the free exchange of ideas.

Advantages of WCC

The faculty are experienced instructors, skilled in discovering and developing the interests and capabilities of their students. The ability to communicate with faculty members minimizes the danger that a student may become confused and lost in the hurry and bustle of college life and emphasizes the importance of the individual. WCC bridges the gap between high school and university, making adjustment easier.

The years of college education offered by WCC are an important budgetary item, especially since there is an increasing tendency for professional preparation to require more than four years of college study. WCC enables students and their families to conserve their resources for the long period of professional training.

WCC provides students with such services and activities as individualized counseling, social and cultural activities, and physical recreation of sufficient variety to meet the needs and patterns of all students.

Students will find the opportunity to adjust their studies to their individual needs; those in high school who did not meet university admission requirements may make up their deficiencies; those who want training for immediate entry into paying jobs will find the courses they need; those who wish to complete two years and transfer to a senior college or university may do so with junior (thirdyear) status.

The Board of Trustees is committed to equality, values the diversity of the District's students, faculty, staff, and people with whom it does business, and believes in the importance of a multicultural education to prepare students for a global society. The Board in its commitment to Diversity has adopted the following: Definition of Diversity, Diversity Statement, Principles of Community, and Diversity Framework for Institutional Transformation and Cultural Competency.

Diversity Statement

The Yuba Community College District service area has a richly diverse population, spanning eight counties (Yuba, Sutter, Colusa, Lake, Yolo, and portions of Butte, Glenn and Placer) and nearly 4,200 square miles of territory in rural Northern California. The District recognizes, embraces, and celebrates the wide array of personal experiences, values, and worldviews that arise from differences of culture and circumstances within its vast educational borders.

The District has a compelling interest in fostering the multi-cultural knowledge, awareness, and skills necessary for its studentbody and workforce to contribute to its vision. The awareness that the District's campuses are accessible to students from all groups, and thus serve all parts of the community equitably, helps sustain the academic and social fabric of the District.

Diversity is an integral part of the District's academic mission as it enriches the educational experiences and scholarly environment for all students. An interactive classroom that enhances diversity of thought and critical thinking across the curriculum will effectively prepare students for the complex and pluralistic world. The District strives to foster an open exchange of ideas in an environment that provides role models and exemplifies the values of integrity, civility, mutual respect, and social justice in all of its activities.

The Yuba Community College District is committed to providing fair and equitable opportunities to students, employees, and the community through its recruitment, admission, and retention.

Principles of Community

The Yuba Community College District is committed to promoting and ensuring an environment that values and supports every person in an atmosphere of civility, honesty, cooperation, professionalism and fairness. Diversity is essential to the creativity and innovation that we seek on our campuses, throughout the District, and in the communities.

The Yuba Community College District expects that every campus member will practice these Principles of Community:

  • We value intellectual and cultural diversity, open communication, collegiality, collaboration, mutual respect, personal integrity, and responsible citizenship.
  • We affirm the dignity of all individuals and strive to uphold a just community in which actions of discrimination and hate are not tolerated.
  • We affirm the right of freedom of expression within our community and also affirm our commitment to the highest standards of civility and decency towards all.
  • We acknowledge that our society carries historical and divisive biases, and therefore, we will endeavor to foster mutual understanding and appreciation among individuals and groups, and we promote awareness through education and constructive strategies for resolving conflicts.
  • We confront and reject all manifestations of discrimination, including those based on ethnicity, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, religious or political beliefs, status within or outside of the District, or any of the other differences among people which have been excuses for misunderstanding, dissension, or hatred.
  • We recognize and cherish the richness contributed to our lives by our diversity. We take pride in our various achievements, and we celebrate our differences.
