​​​​​​​​RSCCD Impacting Orange County

A leader in higher education and workforce training, the District and its two colleges, Santa Ana College and Santiago Canyon College, are generating revenue and jobs while providing an extraordinary return on investment to local taxpayers and business partners.

RSCCD and its colleges implemented an economic impact study performed by EMSI, an industry leader in economic modeling and research. The report details the impact that RSCCD has in Orange County in the operations, construction, student and alumni sectors. It also puts forth detailed investment analyses in student, taxpayer and social sectors.

RSCCD and its colleges are also featured in the Orange County Business Council’s (OCBC) study, The Socioeconomic Benefits Generated by Orange County’s Community Colleges. This report highlights how the community colleges enrich the lives and earning power of their students, while driving the economy forward.

We invite you to explore these reports and learn more about the Rancho Santiago Community College District.
