Dr. Cirian Villavicencio
San Joaquin Delta College 

Meet Dr. Cirian Villavicencio, a friendly and experienced Political Science professor at San Joaquin Delta College. As a first-generation Filipino American, he's passionate about boba, traveling, mountain biking, scuba diving, hiking, photography, and advocacy. If he could dine with anyone from history, it would be Mahatma Gandhi. He dreams of mastering the guitar and would time travel to Ancient Greece to witness the birth of Athenian democracy.

If not a professor, he'd be a college football coach. His motto: "If you're not at the table, bring your own chair."

A bit of advice from Dr. Cirian Villavicencio to someone just beginning their career as a community college professor:

"Always know your students needs; meet them where they are; and love them for who they are."

Dr. Villavicencio loves making an impact on student's lives, teaching political knowledge and promoting civic engagement. Beyond work, he enjoys karaoke, especially singing "Sweet Caroline." He holds an Ed.D. from the University of Wyoming.
