President's Office

President Tomaneng


It's my pleasure to welcome you to San José City College!

I want to extend a warm welcome to the entire San José City College family!

I am proud and excited to represent the campus to the wider community. SJCC, at its core, has a strong academic tradition, a culture of service and success, and an unwavering commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and social justice.

As the oldest community college in Santa Clara County, SJCC, has provided students with a top-notch, quality education since 1921. Today, more than 100 years after we opened our doors to the community, SJCC offers affordable tuition and 68 degrees and certificates, including career technology programs. We are also home to the renowned Jaguar Athletics Program that has produced numerous Olympic athletes.

Every aspect of the San José City College experience—our outstanding faculty, dedicated staff, and administrators; programs such as San José Promise, EOPS, and METAS; and services such as Career/Transfer, Job Placement, and Learning Resource Center—is designed with your success in mind. It is not surprising that we are a top transfer institution to four-year universities, including the UC, CSU systems,  and many private institutions.

SJCC is also a welcoming and supportive learning community. Students of all ages come to us from a variety of backgrounds, cultures, countries, and status. Our #1 priority is to ensure that the college's broad range of services creates an environment that allows students to thrive in the classroom and beyond, whether on the SJCC campus or Milpitas Extension.

On any given day during the academic year, you will find an array of events and activities happening all around campus and in our community. I urge you to participate and experience all San José City College has to offer. Here, you will discover and develop your best talents, attain your goals, and move on to a brilliant future. Go Jags!

In Community Spirit,
Rowena M. Tomaneng, Ed.D.
