Santa Rosa Junior College has been offering courses in the Petaluma area since the late 1960s. The Petaluma Center operated primarily as an evening program until completion of permanent facilities on its current site in 1995. The Petaluma Center was granted campus status by the SRJC Board of Trustees and the California Community College Chancellor’s Office in 1999.
At SRJC Petaluma, our goal is to not only to teach, but also to guide students on the path to discovery. Approximately 6,400 students are enrolled in credit and non-credit courses held both day and evening. At our campus, students turn their passion into a profession. Each semester we offer approximately 300-course sections in nearly 50 disciplines, including majors and career preparation certificates as well as all of the general education courses necessary for transfer to a UC or CSU.
At SRJC Petaluma, students learn their way. Instructional offerings include a full complement of general education courses and 20+ transfer majors, a state of the art Film Studies program that includes a Cinema Series and Digital Film Production classes, Fitness Nutrition and Health certificate, Veterinary Technology, Digital Media Audio, CISCO certification in CCNA, IT support, Yoga Teacher Training certificate, and Water and Wastewater Utility Operations certificates. Through dynamic instructors and innovative programming, students learn their calling inside and outside the classroom. Our House Intercultural Center hosts cultural and education events that engage the community year-round, including the annual, We the Future Social Justice Conference. Petaluma campus opens its doors to the greater community every October for LumaFest, the annual education fair and open house.
SRJC Petaluma is a campus designed for hands-on, experiential learning experiences. In 2008, a second phase of new construction for the Petaluma campus was completed, and a third phase of construction completed in 2009 renovated the original campus. New facilities included: life science labs, a second art studio, physical science labs, a 35,000 square foot library, a physical fitness center, a bookstore, student services and support areas (including student health services, tutorial center, and career/transfer center), expanded dining space, classrooms/technology labs, faculty/administrative offices, digital media lad, and a 256-seat auditorium with the best media technology in the District. The campus offers state-of-the-art technology throughout, including a unique wireless network, fully mediated instructional facilities, and video-conferencing capabilities. Other unique features of the Petaluma Campus include the Capri Creek restoration project, community and permaculture gardens, sustainable design and an accessible pedestrian and bike trail system with a route that extends around the perimeter of the campus and continues throughout the city of Petaluma. Presently the campus is undergoing additional facilities’ development through funding provided by Measure H, which will continue expanding instruction and services to meet the priorities of our diverse learning community. This beautiful campus is located only 35 miles north of San Francisco.
Petaluma's Newly Created College District
One of the objectives from the City of Petaluma Economic Development Strategy was to develop a program to market the unique qualities and attributes that make Petaluma a great business location. To kick start that effort, the City hired the Petaluma Design Guild to develop a website, a series of videos, and printed materials to showcase Petaluma and generate business interest. Part of this effort resulted in the creation of various “districts” within the city of Petaluma. SRJC Petaluma now resides within the “College” district of the city of Petaluma.
