The Dusty Baker Center is committed to providing student athletes with services that support their academic and intercollegiate sport goals while enrolled at American River College. The Center, consistent with the college’s mission, is dedicated to a supportive, inclusive environment that inspires critical thinking, learning and achievement, as well as responsible participation in intercollegiate sports.

In support of its mission the Dusty Baker Center coordinates the following holistic services for its student athletes:

  • Athletic counseling
  • Eligibility support
  • Academic Game Plan (tutoring, study skills, time management skills, peer mentoring)

The Center was named in honor of Dusty Baker, who started his glorious baseball career here at American River College. Dusty later came back and provided the funding to build this resource center for student athletes. The center was dedicated to Dusty in 2011.
