​CHANCELLOR'S MESSAGE

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

Our District is at a very special place in its history with many success stories, including: 
  • Reaffirmed full-accreditation status for both Evergreen Valley College and San Jose City College by the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC).
  • Enhanced positive multicultural and multilingual college environment where all students, employees and the community are valued, welcomed, and supported.
  • Being among of the best performing community colleges for transfer to the California State University and the University of California.
  • Earned strong credit ratings by Standard and Poor’s and Moody’s which made it possible for the District to refinance its long term bonds, resulting in a savings of approximately $30 million dollars ($20-million-dollar savings from the April 2014 refinancing and $10-million-dollar savings from the June 2015 refinancing) for District taxpayers in the next 20 years.
  • Completed major bond-funded improvements; and new constructions such as the EVC’s South Campus Development, Fitness Center, and Automotive Technology buildings; and the SJCC’s new Physical Education building.
  • Increased capacity with many new and updated buildings to provide adult education and career technical education programs.
  • Increased access to college education for District residents in and around Milpitas through the San José-Evergreen Community College Extension at Milpitas, linking high school students to careers. This site began holding classes in February 2017.   
  • Improved IT infrastructure and websites.
  • Managed strong fiscal stewardship which led to perfect fiscal and performance audits for both District general operations and for our Facilities Bond program.

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!"
