We're one of the country's leading community colleges - recognized for our innovation, our community leadership and our teaching excellence. We're also known for caring about each student every step of the way.
They say you can't be all things to all people but, at Delta, we don't believe that.
Achieving the Dream leader college
As an Achieving the Dream Leader College, Delta is recognized for its commitment to improving student success and closing achievement gaps. It's just one way we continue to provide the best education to our students, helping them achieve their dreams, whatever they are. “We’re pleased to making a measurable difference in the lives of our students and excited about continuing this work as a Leader College,” said Delta College President Dr. Jean Goodnow.
League for Innovation
Delta College is a charter member of the League for Innovation in the Community College. The League is an international organization dedicated to catalyzing the community college movement. It hosts events and provides resources with its member colleges, corporate partners and other agencies in its continuing efforts to make a positive difference for students and communities.
Kenyan sister college alliances
In 1989, Delta College entered into a unique and historic international agreement with Rift Valley Institute of Science and Technology in Nakuru, Kenya. The arrangement created a sister college collaborative for education exchange and mutual benefits for both institutions and their communities.
Delta College entered into a similar agreement with Tracom College, also in Nakuru, Kenya. The three allies are pledged to collaborate and assist each other to reach common goals and outcomes through knowledge sharing; faculty, staff and student learning; exchange of educational materials, art and technology; and community education.
Delta is nationally recognized as one of America's leading community colleges.
At Delta, we care about sustainability. Our latest building was given a LEED Gold Certification. We're proud of that.
Delta opened its doors in 1961 to 2,636 students. It was a historic moment for the people of the Great Lakes Bay Region.
"Delta College has grown to be a national community college leader since we opened over 50 years ago. If our founders were here today, I know they would be proud of all we have accomplished."
