Mission, Vision, and Values

Our Vision

Folsom Lake College opens minds and doors through the power of education, inspiring all students to become socially responsible members of society.

Our Mission

Embracing knowledge, experience, equity, and innovation, Folsom Lake College enriches and empowers students to contribute to their communities.

Folsom Lake College, serving the diverse communities of eastern Sacramento and western El Dorado counties, offers educational opportunities for students to improve foundational skills, to achieve career goals, to transfer to four-year institutions, and to earn associate degrees and certificates.

Our Commitment to Equity

Education should belong to everyone. To nourish this inclusion, FLC champions equity, diversity, social justice, and environmental sustainability as foundational to academic, campus, and community life. We work with the communities we serve toward just and fair inclusion into society in which all people can participate, prosper, and reach their full potential. We commit to equity driven decision-making, planning, and reflective processes that are responsive to the diverse identities and experiences in our community.

We seek to empower marginalized voices, nurture our many identities and social circumstances, foster cultural responsiveness, and stand against all manifestations of discrimination, including (but not limited to) those based on: ability or disability, age, pregnancy or reproductive status, body type or size, physical or mental health status, neurodiversity, ancestry, ethnicity, citizenship or immigration status, language, race or racial identity, national origin, economic status, incarceration experience, educational status, employment status, food or housing insecurity, military or veteran status, marital or partner status, gender, gender identity, gender expression, sex, sexual orientation, political affiliation, and/or religion.

Our Land Acknowledgment Statement

We respectfully acknowledge the land currently occupied by Folsom Lake College as the traditional home of the sovereign Nisenan, Maidu, and Miwok peoples who have a unique and enduring relationship stewarding this land since time immemorial. Despite colonization, occupation, and genocide, the Nisenan, Maidu, and Miwok people continue and thrive in their resilience and self-determination. We celebrate and recognize our Nisenan, Maidu, and Miwok tribal neighbors and honor their sustained existence.
