Our definition of learner-centered is continually expanding into new methods and platforms, providing today's learners with lifelong knowledge, support, and mobility.

Technology has been a driving force at SJC since we pioneered online learning. Now the expectations of students raised on personalized digital learning paths demand that we advance it even further. Micro-credentials represent the latest renewal of our online content and experience around the core theme of "Leadership for Sustainable Communities."
