Opportunity. Equity. Social Justice.

These are the guiding principles of the San José-Evergreen Community College District.

Student Success is the heart of our mission and we've hired the best and brightest faculty and staff to ensure that our students are well prepared when they transfer to a university, enter the workforce, or embark on a path of lifelong learning.  

District's Surplus Land Development

Dear Evergreen Valley College Community:

Thank you for taking the time to get information on the evolving discussions regarding the District's future plans for the underutilized land parcel located at Evergreen Valley College. I wanted to take a quick moment to update you on the current status of the conversation.

The development of this underutilized land will provide ongoing revenue to support student education and the continued growth of student program offerings at Evergreen Valley College. It will also provide our students with nearby services and amenities they have requested for years...(Please click here to continue). 

The San Jos​é-Evergreen Community College District ("District") intends to enter into a long term ground lease with a developer for the approximately 27 acres of land adjacent to Evergreen Valley College ("Surplus Land"). The Surplus Land includes the old District Office site, the existing Police Academy as well as land which is currently not improved. The Surplus Land is adjacent to San Felipe Road and Yerba Buena Road. It is expected that the selected developer will, at its own cost, obtain land use entitlements for the Surplus Land and construct a mixed use project which will probably include, among other uses, multi-family rental housing and retail space. The selected developer will pay a substantial amount of rent to the District.  Our goal is to ensure that there are additional resources, especially during economic downturns, to help our students achieve greater success.​

about sjeccd

For more than 92 years, San José City College has been providing education and workforce opportunities to our district residents in San José; and for more than 39 years, Evergreen Valley College has educated our citizenry in south San José and Milpitas.

Our Workforce Institute is a training partner with many corporations as we work to develop and maintain a vital economy in the “South Bay”.

Demographic changes, economic conditions, educational reforms, and the need for preparing students for postsecondary education prompted Measure G Bond funded initiative to build the Joint Use 21st Century Post-Secondary Education Center in Milpitas. This is a joint project between SJECCD and Milpitas Unified School District (MUSD) to be completed by Fall of 2016 with the following goals:

1. Promote a seamless system of higher education services
2. Expand access to higher education in underserved areas of the District
3. Improve regional economic development opportunities by providing
    access to career and technical education

Adult Education: The Board of Trustees and Chancellor Cepeda have undertaken a new strategic initiative to address the needs of adult learners by establishing a collaborative with local adult education schools and non-profit organizations. Through the Summer and Fall of 2013, the South Bay Consortium for Adult Education (SBCAE) was formed. The purpose of the Consortium is to develop plans for adult education for South Bay region.

Educating more than 20,000 students each year, our colleges are hubs of teaching, learning and innovation in one of the most exciting cities in the world. ​
