Office of the President

Whether you study, visit, or work here, it’s an exciting time to be at Saddleback College!  As we begin our 50th year of educating students in south Orange County, we have affirmed our commitment to student success and we are positioned to make an even greater impact on this region.  

Our academic degrees and certificates and career training programs prepare students to enter today’s workforce and to lead in tomorrow’s economy and society.  Saddleback College ranks in the top ten community colleges in the state with over 3,600 of our students transferring to universities around the state and nation.  Thousands more of our students move directly into skilled positions within trades and industries in southern California once they have completed their education and training on our campus.   

Another strength that you’ll find here is all the online learning opportunities, showing our ability to be nimble and agile in serving the needs of our students and the communities they come from.  In fact, we are the number two community college out of 114 community colleges in California in offering online programs.

Our faculty are leaders in their fields and determine innovative ways to create learning environments that are both challenging and engaging for students.  Throughout our campus, students interact with highly skilled staff who are able to address financial aid questions, career pathways, academic tutoring, and resolve issues that are impeding goal attainment.

On behalf of all of our faculty, staff and administrators, it is my pleasure to welcome you to Saddleback College.  You have made a wise decision to join one of California’s most recognized colleges.  I look forward to seeing you on campus or feel free to reach out to me by email.  You will get my reply!

See Saddleback’s team as your partner as you enter your future!
