Welcome to Spring 2018! We are embarking on a new and exciting journey at Los Angeles City College under the leadership of our new interim president, Dr. Mary Gallagher. In response to our continuing enrollment challenges, the college has enlisted the help of the California Community College Institutional Effectiveness Partnership Initiative (IEPI). The Partnership Resource Team (PRT) for IEPI visited us twice this last fall and has worked with us to develop a plan to deal with this challenge. In addition, IEPI is supplying the college a grant of $200,000 to begin implementing the plan. Therefore, we are embarking on an ambitious and courageous journey to market and brand the college under the guidance of talented professionals. In addition, the Academic Senate, through the work of the Educational Policies and Program Integrity Committee (EPPIC), is leading a process to evaluate college programs to develop various scenarios by which administration and faculty can work together to improve efficiency and grow enrollment in our programs. Working together with our partners, we can turn the college around and in the words of Dr. Gallagher, “awaken this sleeping giant.”
This newsletter is a resource guide that contains most of the information you need to inform your work and meet deadlines; and, it provides you resources you can use to promote the success of the students in your classroom.
It is great to have you back. So, let us work together to “awaken this sleeping giant” and make LACC the college of “first choice” for the college-going population in southern California.
