History and Highlights
On April 6, 2016, College of Marin (COM) celebrated its 90th anniversary — 90 years of transforming lives through education and training! When COM opened its doors in 1926, there were 87 students enrolled. Today, COM serves over 13,000 annually in its credit, noncredit, and community education programs.
We are proud of our 90-year legacy serving Marin County and we plan to celebrate this milestone at upcoming performances and events that exemplify our rich history and commitment to educational excellence. Please join us!
