Quote from the President

"Cosumnes River College (CRC) serves more than 15,000 students, an increase of 34 percent since 2006. It achieves its mission through strategic educational and financial planning with student access and success at the forefront of its efforts. Since its inception 40 years ago, CRC has been committed to engaging and inspiring our students through educational experiences with a personal touch. We are proud of our exemplary academic history and the progress we continue to make in serving our students and the surrounding community."

Interesting Facts

  • In Fall 2008, a group of faculty formed a sustainability committee to focus efforts on reducing our campus environmental footprint. The committee included 17 faculty members (from 11 different disciplines), two classified staff members, and five students.
  • Many of CRC’s faculty are prominent in their fields. Music Professor Kurt Erickson's music has been commissioned and performed by a wide range of chamber ensembles, orchestras, choruses, sacred music institutions, ballet companies, and colleges and universities. Recent compositional highlights include a 45-minute ballet commission from San Francisco Opera Ballet Master Lawrence Pech.
  • CRC students make us proud. Former CRC student and recent UC Berkeley graduate Irene Kucherova received the Judith Lee Stronach Baccalaureate Prize for her project, "Enhancement Pilot Program for Orphanage 1 in Kherson, Ukraine." Kucherova was an architecture student at CRC who transferred to UC Berkeley in fall 2008. The Stronach Prize supports intellectual and creative pursuits that heighten awareness of issues of social consciousness and the public good. It is one of the highest honors that UC Berkeley bestows on a graduating senior.
