Welcome back! I hope everyone enjoyed a restful
As this issue of Campus Scene attests, we are rapidly approaching the
busiest time of our calendar. Although we have been engaged in active
discussions about funding and facilities, I would like to remind everyone
that we must focus on the work at hand: teaching, learning, and student
support. I believe that our Grossmont College community values our students
and their success, putting students first, day in and day out.
I would like to express my appreciation to everyone who serves on any of our
participatory governance committees. Committee and council work is rigorous,
and requires an interest in and commitment to the subject matter, whether it
be the College Cost Savings Task Force, the Educational Development and
Innovation Committee, or the Staffing Committee. Dedicated faculty and staff
share their time and talent to make Grossmont College a stronger
institution. We will soon circulate a list of opportunities to participate
in the 2005-2006 academic year.
During the next two months we have multiple options to celebrate student
achievement and to recognize the many ways Grossmont College and our
students excel. These celebrations remind us of our primary purpose as
educators our students and their accomplishments, and reward us as a
community for our efforts.
We received some very good news! Our online edition of Campus Scene received
a first place gold Paragon award in national competition sponsored by the
National Council for Marketing and Public Relations. Please help me thank
the talented group who help create and disseminate this e-newsletter for us.
