Superintendent/President Message

January 15, 2013

Welcome to Spring Semester, 2013

The campus has come alive again as students, faculty and staff begin Spring Semester, 2013. There is optimism in the air with the positive impact of Proposition 30’s passage in November and a balanced budget proposal coming from the Governor’s office.

Opening Day set a tone of reflection and enthusiasm as all employees re-discovered ways to work together to help students succeed. In the general session, students—past and present—talked about how our employees helped them grow into the leaders they are today. They also challenged us to raise the bar for all students.

My presentation provided data on our student achievement and outlined strategies that our students tell us work well in building their success. Many of you have asked for a copy of the presentation. It is under the presentations portion of my page: http://www.swccd.edu/pdfs/OpeningDay_Sp13.pdf

As we settle into the spring semester, let us remember the excitement of this week and our promise to reach out to students on their journey to educational success.
