From the Office of Chancellor Debbie Budd
Dear Community Member: Thank you for another great year at the San José-Evergreen Community College District (District). Together we have broken down barriers for student success and achieved major milestones that will ensure a brilliant future for our students and our community.
In 2016 we celebrated the largest graduating class in the District's history with an increase of 97% for degrees and certificates issued compared with 2010 and increase of 29% compared with 2015. These degree and certificate recipients went on to four-year universities or embarked on career paths that transformed their lives, their families and their communities.
We are thankful the community voted on November 8, 2016, to pass Measure X, a general obligation bond. This bond will provide $748 million for new construction, upgrades and improvements throughout the District. It will enable the District and campuses to support the needs identified by the 2030 Facilities and Education Master Plans in order to meet the demands of 21st Century education for our future students.
We also increased and strengthened partnerships and collaboration with community leaders from various sectors, including education, government, business, public and private organizations and individuals.
Community colleges are the equity engine of California. Working together, the District will help diversify the workforce in the Silicon Valley.
We are excited to share with you additional success stories through the 2016 annual report.
Together, we will continue focusing on strengthening our academic and career technical education programs and services that equip our students with the knowledge, skills and abilities for success as contributing and productive citizens in the 21st Century global community.
Thank you for taking a moment to celebrate with us these achievements as a result of our collective effort in "Breaking Down Barriers for Student Success!"
