SBCTC Staff Mission and Values

Staff Mission and Values

State Board Vision: Leading with racial equity, our colleges maximize student potential and transform lives within a culture of belonging that advances racial, social, and economic justice in service to our diverse communities.

We are committed to building a culture of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI). Learn more about how SBCTC’s DEI efforts strengthen our community fabric as we promote opportunity for all.
