80th Anniversary Celebration, January 2016

Daryl M. Stinchfield

Born in Auburn and raised in Rocklin, Sierra College has been a pillar of community and educational excellence for 80 years.

If you take the time to explore Sierra College’s history, you’ll find that its history is drenched in innovation.

  • The first community college to offer dedicated educational opportunities for wounded vets? Sierra College.
  • The first person to discover dinosaur fossils in Northern California? A Sierra College instructor.
  • The number one community college in California awarding associate degrees? Sierra College.

This is just the tip of the iceberg.

At every turn, Sierra College has been an educational leader. It’s who we’ve been, it’s who we are, it’s who we’ll always be.

As we turn the page to the next 80 years, we understand that our history of innovation has spring boarded us to a future of unlimited possibility.

We invite you to continue exploring this commemorative 80th anniversary site for special milestones, unique discoveries, and special historical gems.

Sierra College—Always. Forward.
