(“Blueprint for the Future”)

Mt. San Jacinto College (MSJC) shared news about student successes, initiatives and programs, as well as new building projects at its State of the College on Friday at its Menifee Valley Campus.

“It’s an exciting and transitional time at Mt. San Jacinto College, with many important milestones on the horizon,” Dr. Roger Schultz, Superintendent/President of MSJC, told about 100 community leaders and residents. “Because of our partners, you and MSJC’s hardworking faculty, classified staff, and administrators, we truly do Transform Learners, Transform Communities, Transform Lives.”

Schultz and other college administrators unveiled plans for the new Temecula Valley Campus, which opens in Fall 2020; two STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) buildings at the San Jacinto and Menifee Valley campuses; a Student Center at the Menifee Valley Campus; and a new 5,000-seat stadium in Menifee that would host games and community events beginning in 2023.

Schultz also discussed the college’s free tuition program.

MSJC STATE OF THE COLLEGE AUDIENCE: Temecula Councilman Matt Rahn was among the 100 people who attended MSJC’s State of the College on Friday at the Menifee Valley Campus.

“Because we know the cost of tuition can prevent students from attending college, we created the MSJC Promise earlier this year that allows first-time, full-time students to attend MSJC tuition free,” he said. More information can be found at

He also shared information about the MSJC Foundation’s Pledge for Success, a basic-needs initiative that helps students with emergency food; books and supplies; professional clothing; basic, essential hygienic items; and emergency funding.

“The Pledge for Success has already made a difference in students’ lives and it’s growing thanks to dozens of generous donors, including many of my colleagues here at MSJC,” Schultz said. “If you’re interested in donating to this very worthy cause, please visit Thank you for anything you can do to help us remove further barriers to our students’ success.”
