Connecting Skyline College with Our Community
The Skyline College Outreach Office ensures that members of our local community, especially high school students and adult learners, stay informed about the resources available to them through Skyline College.
Our Outreach team meets the community where they are – in high school classrooms, at local events, in community organizations, and here on campus. We’re the face of Skyline College, and we want to make sure we empower people of all ages to meet their educational goals by enrolling at Skyline College.
