SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. -- The San Bernardino Community College District is initiating a nationwide search for the next president of San Bernardino Valley College, serving approximately 17,000 students in Southern California’s inland region.
SBCCD Chancellor Diana Z. Rodriguez is enthusiastic about the district’s current progress, stating, “Our district is in the strongest position in its nearly 100-year history, and the next San Bernardino Valley College president will be at the helm of our most transformative time yet.”
San Bernardino Valley College has become a top-performing college in terms of student success, fiscal stability, community partnerships, and state-of-the-art facilities.

SBCCD invites applications until February 7. Detailed information about the application process is available on the official website at sbccd.edu. The successful candidate may assume office as early as August.
The district is committed to an inclusive and comprehensive selection process. A committee of district leadership, faculty, staff, and students of diverse backgrounds will provide input on the candidates.
As the college nears its centennial in 2026, this search marks a pivotal moment for the institution and the local community.
