Quote from the Chancellor

“In 2012, St. Louis Community College (STLCC) celebrates five decades of dynamic learning and a legacy of positive impact on our region and our alumni. Over 1.2 million students have passed through our doors during that time. Our journey has focused on access, academic rigor, continuous quality, and hiring the best-qualified faculty and staff. Opening one new campus and three new educational centers in less than five years characterizes our belief in our future and demonstrates how we are ready, responsive, nimble and dynamic in serving the needs of our constituents—almost  80,000 students per year.  We are an institution of extraordinary impact—we expand minds and change lives every day.”
