President's Office

Moving Forward Together

 

Congratulations on your wise decision to join our community of learners. We are proud to be ranked a Champion of Higher Education for our fifth straight year by Campaign for College Opportunity as well as the Best Community College in California by The Community College Foundation. We are grateful to have you here if you are a current or prospective student or a visitor to our beautiful campus and a positive experience awaits you here at Moorpark College. 

We provide the resources and opportunities needed to support students’ academic success.  This year, you will find that our students have more opportunities than ever before.   Our outstanding faculty, staff, and administrators put “Learners First” and their various accolades demonstrate Moorpark College’s steadfast commitment to academic excellence and student development.  This is especially true after the challenges that we faced as a global community this last year.

You’ll find that Moorpark College faced each of the challenges of 2020-2021 and surpassed expectations.  In fact, Moorpark College conferred 1,331 Associate Degrees for Transfer (ADT) in 2020-21.

Furthermore, our students excel outside of the classroom by adding value to their communities through their efforts that focus on social justice and equity. Moorpark College provides opportunities for students to link their academic knowledge to their career interests through internships and other hands-on, work-based learning opportunities. Our career education programs were designed to be aligned with changing times and current labor market needs and provide safe learning environments that promote the wellness of our students, faculty, and staff.

Moorpark College opened in 1967 with 2,500 students and 50 employees. Today, Moorpark College has more than 400 faculty and staff serving over 14,000 students.

I have no doubt that you will find that Moorpark College students are primed for success.  This can be attributed to the foundation laid by our institution’s founders and the ongoing efforts of our campus team. When you attend our college, you are joining the ranks of more than 50 years of highly successful students that have transferred to four-year institutions, transitioned into exciting new careers, and who are now engaged in life and work in our communities.  

I personally welcome and wish you every success in achieving your educational goals at Moorpark College.

Sincerely,

Dr. Julius O. Sokenu
President
