President's Welcome

President SanchezWelcome to Moorpark College. We opened in 1967, and we are very proud of our beautiful campus, our stellar faculty and staff, and our excellent programs. Whether you are a current or prospective student, or simply visiting our campus to attend one of our many cultural or intellectual events, I trust that you will be welcomed warmly and helpfully by all of our employees. 

Moorpark College is a member of the Ventura County Community College District, and is recognized as one of our nation’s finest community colleges. Many of our students attend Moorpark College in order to cultivate technical skills that lead to well-paid and secure careers, and a large number of our students transfer to highly respected public and private universities.  But in addition to the subject-matter expertise our students acquire, we also teach by example the values we embrace. Those values include citizenship, responsibility, compassion, and collegiality.  We take very seriously our responsibility to the communities we serve, and to maintain high standards of integrity, service, excellence, and continuous improvement.

As the son of hard-working immigrants, I love this nation of freedom and opportunity, and it is my privilege to help our students find, academically and professionally, their footing in life. It is our joy to hear the many success stories of former students who have gone on to spectacular success and achievement.  We are even more moved by those who toil unheralded in the quiet service of their communities, or on the broader national and international stages, to help us address the many vexing challenges our world faces. Their work ensures that our children and grandchildren may continue to experience the “blessings of liberty” which we so gratefully enjoy here at Moorpark College.
