Our Vision and Mission

Our Vision

Our vision is to transform the lives of students and enhance the vitality of our region.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide a vibrant learning environment that empowers all students to achieve their educational and career goals.

Our Commitment to Equity

Education should belong to everyone. To nourish this inclusion, Los Rios Colleges Online champions equity, diversity, social justice, and environmental sustainability as foundational to academic, campus, and community life. We work with the communities we serve toward just and fair inclusion into society in which all people can participate, prosper, and reach their full potential. We commit to equity driven decision-making, planning, and reflective processes that are responsive to the diverse identities and experiences in our community.

We seek to empower marginalized voices, nurture our many identities and social circumstances, foster cultural responsiveness, and stand against all manifestations of discrimination, including (but not limited to) those based on: ability statuses, age, ancestry, body size, citizenship/immigration status, economic status, educational status, employment status, ethnicity, food/housing insecurity, gender, gender identity, gender expression, incarceration experience, language, marital/partner status, military/veteran status, national origin, neurodiversity, political affiliation, pregnancy/reproductive status, race/racial identity, religion, sex, and sexual orientation.


Vision and mission statements were approved by the Los Rios Community College District Board of Trustees on December 14, 2016.
