Mission Statement

The mission of the International Program is to provide services and programs for the diverse community at the State Center Community College District by working to support the international population, coordinating intercultural and international education, and fostering a global campus community that prepares our students as global citizens and as part of the global workforce.


Our vision is to foster global campuses where through mutual understanding and respect, all SCCCD community members transform and grow together through a global educational experience. We strive for inclusive, intercultural excellence where everyone derives value from the experiences of others. Learning from this global focus, members of our community will take these shared experiences and carry them forward through life.
