A Promise to Our Community

17 January 2017

Berkeley City College, formerly Vista Community College, embraces a vision and values which allow all members of our college community to grow and thrive.  The college was founded on the premise that all are welcome to our learning community and we are first and foremost committed to this.  The foundations of our success as a center for learning originate in our diversity and in our respect for each other, our love of knowledge, education and collaboration, in our commitment to civic engagement and to social justice, and to lifelong learning for everyone.  All are welcome to join us and grow as we learn and thrive together.  We will steadfastly uphold these values which guide our college community, even in these challenging times.
