Empire College students connect with the community to prepare them for the future. We believe the philanthropic spirit at Empire College sets us apart from other schools. It also gives our students real-world experience while helping them stand out from those they’ll be competing with for future careers.

Participation and membership in professional organizations provides students the opportunity to network while they are attending school. Organizations include the Institute of Management Accountants, Redwood Empire Association of Paralegals, International Association of Administrative Professionals, California Medical Assistants Association, and the Sonoma County Bar Association.
