Palo Alto’s motto shares our belief that Palo Alto College is “the heart of the community," the College knows that the Faculty is the heart of the institution. It is through stimulating interaction with instructional leaders that a student is challenged and gains the knowledge that will propel him or her into the world. The College is committed to providing the resources to help our Faculty succeed so that our students can succeed.
Palo Alto College Staff members also are key components to the success of the College. Many have direct contact with students, including those in Admissions, Financial Aid and Learning Centers. Others work to provide the support that faculty and staff need to operate by working with budgets, producing publications, compiling information, or answering phones.
Our employees are a valuable resource to providing an enjoyable and successful experience for the 9,000 students who attend Palo Alto College.
