Campus Updates 08/11/22

Hi Campus Community,

Here are this week’s updates!


Message from the President: 

Happy Thursday all! I hope your week is going well so far.  Toward the end of last week, I began my monthly one-on-ones with campus constituent groups.  I met with the faculty senate and the classified staff.  It was so great to hear the enthusiasm from all constituent representatives and innovative ideas about pedagogy.  I’ve been lucky to meet faculty in several disciplines already.  Each meeting has reinforced how much faculty care about students.  

The faculty senate representatives shared their desire to explore working across disciplines, creating opportunities for innovative pedagogies, and other mechanisms to support faculty initiatives. The classified staff had the same level of enthusiasm for their work and improving the institution.  Great ideas were shared which will be followed up on in future meetings (and some ideas are already in motion!).  I am working to schedule regular meetings with the faculty union as well. 

This week, I started getting back into gardening a bit.  During Covid, my wife Jackie and I (yes, Jack & Jackie) expanded our garden beds tremendously and started growing and preparing all kinds of fun things.  I am particularly fond of growing hot peppers and making hot sauces and pepper blends which I realize will be challenging here with the lack of sun and heat.   

I want to wish our campus community a great week as we near the end of our summer quarter. Thank you for all that you do for our students and our campus community.  

Here is a link to my next set of virtual office hours! 

Fall Quarter Planning 

  • Return to Work Update- DAAG 
  • Campus Operating Hours: 
  • Beginning Tuesday, September 6th, campus operating hours will be Monday-Thursdays 8 am-5 pm, Friday 8am – 4:30pm: all services will be available in person, as well as online.  

  • Employee Work Schedules: 
  • Administrative/exempt, classified staff, and non-instructional faculty will return to on-campus work for their regularly scheduled work shifts.  
  • Faculty will have an increased on-campus presence with the return to predominantly in-person instruction, office hours, and events.  
  • Campus Cleaning:  
  • Returning to pre-COVID 19 cleaning standards in Fall 2022 means the College will provide the same level of reliable custodial services currently delivered but without the additional sanitizing measures previously required by local, state, and federal offices following the pandemic-driven closure two years ago.  However, the College will retain a number of public health practices that were put into place in response to COVID-19, including the availability of hand sanitizers, masks, and wipe dispensers throughout all of our buildings. 
  • For the duration of Fall Quarter 2022, parking permits will not be required for the general populations of staff, students, and visitors. Parking permits will be required, but provided free of charge, for Building 7000 residents. Parking and traffic citations will still be issued in the event of illegal parking, hazardous parking, reckless driving, and in the Parent-Child Center designated areas
