Greetings from Dr. Michael A. Baston

At Rockland Community College, we hold a deep commitment to our mission to provide “purpose-driven educational opportunities and guidance to our students in a diverse, affordable, and accessible environment, empowering individuals to positively transform themselves and their communities.” We are not in the business of building bridges to nowhere for the students in our care, but instead offering academic programs in high-demand and growing fields that lead to career opportunities that will better the lives of our students and their families.

For nearly 60 years, Rockland Community College has shone as the jewel of the Lower Hudson Valley, helping students to achieve success and build the region’s economy. Our faculty and staff are dedicated to providing the tools necessary for each student to design his or her own destiny, whether they are intending to transfer to another institution or enter directly into the world of work.

I am proud to be the President of Rockland Community College and hope you will consider RCC as the next stop on your academic journey.
