Profiles in Learning

Learning is at the center of all that we do here at Barstow College. It is measured in the essays we write, the speeches we make, the performances we give, and in the tests we take. Yet, behind each learning experience is a story.

It is the student who has mastered a new concept after hours of hard work. It is the faculty member who has explored new and different ways to improve teaching. It is the staff member who has helped students clear barriers to their educational goals and dreams. It is the leader who has discovered novel ways to allocate time, energy and resources to meet our pledge of academic quality to the community we serve.

Profiles in Learning are the human experiences behind the books, the classrooms, and the computers. They are real life stories of the difference that looking at learning can make for all of us.
