Message from the President

Updated on: Wednesday, July 13, 2022

Welcome to Wenatchee Valley College. We are pleased to assist you on your educational path and encourage you to explore your many educational and cultural opportunities at WVC.

Students remain at the heart of our institution, and we are here to help you reach your goals—whether it is to earn your first two years of a baccalaureate degree and transfer to a four-year college or university, train for a new career or learn new skills to advance in your current work.

Our large district is strengthened by its diversity—from rich cultural heritages to varied geography to creative ideas and interests. We are charged with the responsibility of providing a college climate where students, employees and the public feel that they are welcome and an integral part of our college community and each of our campuses. Our success depends upon us learning from each other and working together to achieve the vision and mission of the college.

The stories from our alumni remind us of the value of our small classes, dedicated faculty and staff and outstanding student services and activities. They tell us how our instructional programs provided an essential step in fulfilling their dreams. WVC alumni shine in our communities.

We enjoy celebrating the successes of our students and alumni, and we continually rededicate ourselves to our vision of educating people, enriching communities and transforming lives.

Dr. James C. Richardson
