Chemeketa is governed by our Board of Education comprised of seven officials elected from geographic districts in our region. They hire and direct President Cheryl Roberts on matters of college policy.
President Roberts is leading Chemeketa to be of the community and for the community. She often says Chemeketa succeeds when our community succeeds. Our vision, mission and promises include transforming lives and communities through exceptional learning experiences. Chemeketa Community College values access and diversity which is affirmed by how we care, collaborate, and innovate with each other and the community. We promise to actively support student learning from precollege to transfer or to the workplace and lifelong learning by focusing on student success, quality, and sustainability in all of our practices and by being responsible stewards of our resources.
We serve nearly 50,000 students each year who enroll to acquire the skills to contribute to the economic vitality of the Mid-Willamette Valley. And programs like the Center for Business & Industry help local enterprises find immediate and long term solutions.
We take our promises to the community very seriously, and invite you to attend an art, science or athletic event to see for yourself all that Chemeketa offers.
And we invite you to consider how you might help the Chemeketa Foundation provide financial support for students who need scholarships and assistance to reach their full potential.
Considering working with Chemeketa? You will be challenged to find a college that matters more to its community than Chemeketa means to the residents of Oregon's Mid-Willamette Valley. If you can affirm our vision to transform lives and communities through exceptional learning experiences, then Chemeketa will be a rewarding workplace to fulfill your potential and contribute your expertise.
