History

Santa Rosa Junior College was established in 1918 and it is the tenth oldest of the 112 California Community Colleges.  SRJC operated as part of Santa Rosa High School until 1927, when a junior college district was formed.  Two years later, Analy Union High School, located in Sebastopol, joined to form a union Junior College District. Between 1962 and 1966, the high schools of Petaluma, Cloverdale, Geyserville, Healdsburg, Sonoma Valley, and parts of Tomales and Point Arena were annexed to form the Sonoma County Junior College District, as we know it today.  The District’s name was officially changed on July 1, 1967 to reflect the geographical scope of the service area.

Santa Rosa has had five presidents since its founding in 1918:  Floyd P. Bailey (1921–1957), Randolph Newman (1957–1970), Roy Mikalson (1971–1990), Robert F. Agrella (1990–2012) and Frank Chong (2012 –Present).
