California Community Colleges May Offer Bachelor's Degrees
Governor Brown has signed legislation that will allow community colleges to offer bachelor's degrees. College districts will be applying for 15 pilot programs that train students for high-demand jobs and that don't duplicate existing programs at the California State University or the University of California. The targeted areas include dental hygiene, health technology, and industrial technology. We will provide updates here on EVC and SJCC's actions in regards to an application for a pilot program.

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 services2. Expand access to higher education in underserved areas of the District3. 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.
