Defining What Makes MVC Unique

Our visual and editorial identity represents the image of Moreno Valley College (MVC) and is the cornerstone of all College communication efforts. This message must remain clear, singular, and consistent to build the identity which will differentiate MVC from other colleges.

What is Branding?

A brand is a representation of what we say about ourselves, how we act, and what people think of us. The goal of having a brand at MVC is to accurately represent the values, contributions and mission of the college in a way that is easily identifiable. A defined brand requires that the voice of MVC as an institution be understandable and relatable through tone, attitude, action as well as in visual and editorial representation.

MVC's mission is defined by four words: education, empowerment, equity and service. We're committed to educating and empowering MVC Lions, providing equitable access to education, and serving our communities. By building a strong brand, we not only reinforce our mission, but we help our students and community believe in what we can accomplish together.

By creating consistency in our messaging, both visual and editorial, Moreno Valley College builds a relationship with our students and community. No matter where or how you're interacting, when you speak on behalf of MVC, you have the opportunity to build and reinforce that trust, which results in more engagement and excitement.

The Message of MVC's Brand

Moreno Valley College is an affordable starting point for a degree, certificate or to complete transfer requirements in the heart of the Inland Empire. We strive to create a sense of belonging for our students and communities because we believe we go further together. As part of a three-college district, MVC offers students a personal, intimate learning experience where support starts from day one and the academic opportunities are many.


Moreno Valley College is an educational and business partner in our growing community. We offer accessible university transfer, career, and technical training certificate and degree programs specializing in health Sciences, human services, and public safety. Our programs originate from a beautiful main campus and are offered at several other convenient locations. Our accomplished faculty and supportive staff are committed to the success of our students and the economic development of our community.


As an institution with two sister colleges, it is vital that MVC's brand ties into our history of educational excellence and that it reflects our continued relationship as part of the three college system of Riverside Community College District. A constituent must see consistent usage of the Moreno Valley College logos so that there is no confusion as to what Moreno Valley College is: an accredited higher education institution.
