Rio Salado and the Maricopa Community Colleges will be closed Mon., Jan. 21 in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

We will resume regular business hours on Tuesday, Jan. 22.

We encourage you to take pause during this national holiday to reflect on Dr. King's contributions to the Civil Rights Movement-- and how you can serve as a steward of this cause.

“Education must enable one to sift and weigh evidence, to discern the true from the false, the real from the unreal, and the facts from the fiction.”

“The function of education, therefore, is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically.”
