A Message from the President

Welcome to Edmonds College!

I am so glad you selected Edmonds College as the next step of your educational journey.  I strongly believe that higher education can change lives, as it changed mine. It can disrupt poverty; it can kickstart dreams; it can open up all kinds of doors for you. You are thinking, planning, and working towards achieving a brighter future for yourself and your family. 

We are here to help you accomplish your goals. At Edmonds College, we pride ourselves on being innovative, supportive, and inclusive. We are a forward-thinking community that is always changing and adapting. As Charles Darwin said, “It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change.”

We understand that education is evolving, and many of you seek a more flexible and affordable way to earn associate degrees, professional certificates, and bachelor’s degrees. We hear you and are adapting to your needs by offering you many new opportunities and pathways to reach your goals. 

We also understand that many of you face everyday barriers that you must overcome to pursue your education. We offer support programs if you need financial aid, tutoring, job training, childcare, assistance to address food insecurities, or mental health counseling. We have centralized the Triton Student Resource Hub to help manage your needs. We are here to make Edmonds College a safe and welcoming place for you to succeed. 

I truly believe the only thing standing between people and their dreams is education. So I ask you to stay focused, stay on your path, and get to the finish line. And if you need help along the way, we are here to support and cheer you on. 

Thank you so much for joining the Edmonds College family,

Dr. Amit B. Singh
Edmonds College President
