President's Message

" Learning For The Future"

Dr. Julie Barnes, President- Cuyamaca CollegeDear Students,

As the president of Cuyamaca College, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our renowned campus. Cuyamaca College truly is an institution of higher education for the 21st century, and each of us at the college is here to assist and support you in your educational pursuits.

We take great pride in our beautiful campus, what many believe is the most beautiful college in California, in our faculty and staff who are second to none, in our comprehensive and relevant curriculum, and in our commitment to student success that is unexcelled. We have laid the groundwork for you to be successful college students and all that's left to do is for you to seize this opportunity with your heads and your hands and your hearts, and make the most of your time here at Cuyamaca College.

The current economic situation in California has had a devastating impact on the community college system. The impact of the reductions in funding is evident by the reduced number of class sections we are able to offer. We know many of you are not able to get all the classes that you need to reach your educational goals. We know how frustrating this situation is, but be assured, the classes that we do offer are of exceptional quality. We are hopeful that we will be able to reinvigorate our course offerings soon.

This schedule of classes is a gold mine of opportunity, exploration, achievement, and academic adventure. We are excited that you are here and we stand ready to support you in any way we can. Please do not hesitate to ask for help, assistance, or guidance along the way in your academic journey with us. I wish you a very successful semester and opportunity-filled future.


Dr. Julianna Barnes
President, Cuyamaca College
