PRESIDENT'S WELCOME MESSAGE

 

President Paul Sechrist

On behalf of the faculty and staff, I welcome you to the Oklahoma City metro’s largest college – Oklahoma City Community College (OCCC).

OCCC commits to helping every student realize their potential and meet their educational goals. By providing broader access to higher education, OCCC focuses on ensuring that each of its students earns a certificate or degree. OCCC fosters strong human resources and increases the economic benefits for the community. When students leave OCCC, they are properly educated and trained to either immediately join the workforce or are prepared to successfully transition to a four-year university.

In addition to achieving a top-quality education, students participate in many of the 40+ clubs and organizations and attend events such as the annual Arts Festival Oklahoma. The college offers numerous cultural program opportunities at the Visual and Performing Arts Center and proudly hosts world-class productions year-round. Discussing current legislative issues and increasing voter engagement is a dynamic facet of OCCC, and with the Public Affairs Forum series, students and community members both gain insight into past and present Oklahoma politics each semester.

OCCC reinforces its community with strong values; accountability, stewardship, integrity, innovation, and diversity exemplify the college’s high standards. In these values, the college achieves its mission of empowering students, enriching the community, and engendering a prosperous future.

As OCCC President, I appreciate this opportunity and am excited to affect positive change while furthering the established success of our college.

I invite you to visit our campus and become a part of a community of innovative, determined individuals who exemplify the excellence of Oklahoma’s people and future leaders.

Sincerely,
