Mission & Vision
Evergreen Valley College guides all students to pathways that reach their educational and career goals through equity-centered, innovative academic programs and support services. By creating a learning environment where everyone feels welcomed and supported, we are committed to a culture of inquiry, growth, and respect that creates an equitable society in which all can participate and prosper.
To be the leading college advancing opportunity, equity, and social justice through supporting students’ aspirations, education, and career attainment.
Opportunity: EVC defines opportunity as providing pathways to success in higher education regardless of students’ unique circumstances.
Equity: EVC defines equity as continually creating conditions that allow historically marginalized and underrepresented students to reach their educational goals successfully, with the commitment to deepening our awareness of institutional barriers that impede students' success by intentionally reviewing, changing, and addressing our programs, procedures, and practices.
Social Justice: EVC defines social justice as eliminating structural barriers and racial hierarchies to ensure fair access to resources and opportunities that create a sense of belonging where all can thrive.

We acknowledge that we gather at Evergreen Valley College on the unceded aboriginal homeland of the Tamien Nation, past, present, and future. We honor with gratitude the Tamien People who teach us that our relationship with the land is reciprocal, and we must work in unison to keep the world in balance. As educators we believe in the power of words and make this land acknowledgement as a commitment to partner and advocate for a more equitable and inclusive future.
