Administration


President's Welcome

Gonzales

Welcome to Southwest Texas Junior College, one of the top ten community colleges in the United States!

Founded almost 70 years ago, we have grown from a small, one-campus college into a wide-reaching college system. Along with three main college campuses and multiple outreach sites, we also offer dual credit courses in high schools throughout our eleven county service region. Additionally, we work closely with state and national four-year colleges and universities to support and encourage continuing education through transfer.

Our goal is to provide every student with what they need to become successful. We offer degrees in a broad range of fields and disciplines, including Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, and Associate of Applied Science. Certified technical programs are available for students who wish to learn or improve upon a trade skill. We support a wide student demographic with programs that include English as a Second Language and Adult Basic Education.

As a growing institution, we are continuously evaluating and improving our offerings to students. In recent years we have taken steps to improve and update facilities, sometimes building new structures or introducing new technology, sometimes updating existing spaces. Our online presence has increased with more internet classes, greater wireless access at our sites, more smart classrooms, a re-designed website, and social networking connections. Even our organizational structure has been updated for greater efficiency and better student access to administrative channels. 

Southwest Texas Junior College administration, faculty, and staff work hard to make SWTJC both an excellent education and an excellent college-going experience. We are here for our students – their success is our success. 

Sincerely,
Dr. Hector Gonzales
President
Southwest Texas Junior College
