San Juan College is one of the fastest growing community colleges in the New Mexico and serves the community through academic, occupational and community service programs. From its modest start in 1956 with 25 students, the College now has a fall credit enrollment of more than 11,000 students. Staff size has grown from a handful of part-time instructors to a present complement of just over 150 full-time faculty members and nearly 300 adjunct faculty. The College employs a total of 975 men and women (fall 2011), which includes full-time regular employees (faculty and staff), adjunct faculty, and temporary staff.
The College is located on a 600-acre site in Farmington, which is a fertile river valley area surrounded by high mountains, desert highlands, and mesas with breath-taking views. Farmington is the largest city in the Four Corners area and is known for its extraordinary outdoor recreation. Being centrally located between four states makes San Juan College an intriguing and exciting academic destination.
