To be an exemplary and innovative community college that empowers students and employees to strengthen the cultural, social, economic, and environmental well-being of their communities.

Our Mission 

Cosumnes River College is a student-centered, open access community college dedicated to preparing students for an ever changing future. CRC courses and programs empower our diverse students to earn certificates or degrees, transfer to other educational institutions, or attain other lifelong academic or career aspirations.

Our Values 

Cosumnes River College’s culture builds upon a foundation of respect, compassion, civil discourse, and shared decision-making. CRC deeply values academic integrity, cultural competence, equity, social justice, innovation, and sustainability. CRC promotes teaching and learning excellence through diverse educational opportunities, varied instructional modes, and effective student services.

Our Commitment to Equity

Education should belong to everyone. To nourish this inclusion, CRC champions equity, diversity, social justice, and environmental sustainability as foundational to academic, campus, and community life. We work with the communities we serve toward just and fair inclusion into society in which all people can participate, prosper, and reach their full potential. We commit to equity driven decision-making, planning, and reflective processes that are responsive to the diverse identities and experiences in our community.

We seek to empower marginalized voices, nurture our many identities and social circumstances, foster cultural responsiveness, and stand against all manifestations of discrimination, including (but not limited to) those based on: ability statuses, age, ancestry, body size, citizenship/immigration status, economic status, educational status, employment status, ethnicity, food/housing insecurity, gender, gender identity, gender expression, incarceration experience, language, marital/partner status, military/veteran status, national origin, neurodiversity, political affiliation, pregnancy/reproductive status, race/racial identity, religion, sex, and sexual orientation.
