General Information About College of the Redwoods
The Redwoods Community College District has a commitment both to our students and to our community. We are committed to maximizing the success of each student with the expectation that each student will meet her or his educational goal, achieve appropriate learning outcomes in his/her courses and programs, and develop an appreciation for life-long learning. In partnership with other local agencies, we are also committed to enriching the economic vitality of the community whom we serve. The following are the three equally important, primary missions of the Redwoods Community College District: 1. Associate Degree and Certificate Programs. The District will offer rigorous, high-quality educational programs leading to the Associate in Arts or Associate in Science Degree, Certificates of Achievement, or Certificates of Completion. 2. Academic and Transfer Education. The District will offer a high-quality core curriculum that will satisfy the lower-division general education and/or major preparation requirements for transfer to four-year colleges and universities. 3. Professional and Technical Education. The District will provide high-quality professional and technical programs that will allow students to obtain skills necessary to enter or advance in the workforce or to be better prepared for further education. These programs will be continuously articulated with the private and public sectors and with other institutions of higher education. In support of these primary missions, the District will provide the appropriate level of information, programs, and activities to assist students in: 1. Assessing their interests and educational goals and developing plans that will help them achieve these goals; 2. Using current technological resources, innovative instructional resources, personalized tutorial services, and broad-based research tools; and 3. Choosing coursework preparatory to college-level work, if necessary—specifically, pre-collegiate math and English courses and courses in English as a second language (ESL). To the extent possible, under state guidelines or with local funding, the District will provide the following life-long learning opportunities, as well as opportunities for enhancing and promoting the general welfare of the community: 1. Non-Credit Adult Education. The District will provide state-funded, adult education classes in response to local interests and needs and in cooperation with other local providers. 2. Community Services. The District will provide self-supporting avocational, recreational, and professional development classes, as well as cultural and community programs. 3. Economic Development. The District will participate with local business and industry and other educational and government agencies to foster the economic vitality of the North Coast region.
