San José – Evergreen CCD
Fills Key Leadership Role
(San Jose, Calif.) —Following a nationwide search, San José – Evergreen Community College District (SJECCD) has named Jorge L. Escobar as its vice chancellor of administrative services. Escobar, who has been serving in the role in an interim capacity since early 2019, will have responsibility for SJECCD's financial planning, resource allocation, and performance of the institution. As the chief business officer, he will lead multiple units including fiscal services, purchasing, and risk management, as well as bond program, police services, maintenance, and operations, among other areas.
"This is a very important leadership position within our District and it is critical as we navigate through the challenges and opportunities presented by the COVID-19 crisis," said Dr. Byron D. Clift Breland, SJECCD chancellor. "While serving as interim vice chancellor, Jorge has infused the right level of energy and ideas in order to simplify, enhance, or automate the operational environment. During this time, he's led highly complex situations with integrity and elevated the fiscal positioning of the District as we received re-affirmation of AA+ and AA1 credit ratings from S&P and Moody's in April 2020."

Supporting Students in Need and Maintaining Affordable Education Are Top Priorities among SJECCD Constituents
(San Jose, Calif.) —San José – Evergreen Community College District (SJECCD) commissioned an independent survey this month showing residents are highly compassionate towards the current challenges faced by today's local students—including food insecurities, hunger, and homelessness. Another top priority identified by the community was maintaining affordable education at a reasonable price to continue to increase opportunities for local students to earn college credits, certifications and job skills, and transfer to four-year universities.
"The community realizes that the cost of housing in the Bay Area is continuing to rise and is getting out of control," said SJECCD Chancellor Byron D. Clift Breland. "Many students at San Jose City College and Evergreen Valley College are facing homelessness and hunger and we must ensure they have access to basic needs like food and childcare so they can continue to pursue their education and receive the skills they need to stay in school and work in our community."

For over 98 years, San José City College has been providing education and workforce opportunities to our district residents in San José; and for more than 44 years, Evergreen Valley College has educated our citizenry in south San José and Milpitas.
Our Community College Center for Economic Mobility (formerly Workforce Institute), established in 1988, is a training partner with many corporations as we work to develop and maintain a vital economy in the “South Bay”.
Demographic changes, economic conditions, educational reforms, and the need for preparing students for postsecondary education prompted Measure G Bond funded initiative to build the San José-Evergreen Community College Extension (formerly "Joint Use 21st Century Post-Secondary Education Center") in Milpitas. This is a joint project between SJECCD and Milpitas Unified School District (MUSD) which began holding its first classes in spring 2017 with the following goals:
1. Promote a seamless system of higher education services2. Expand access to higher education in underserved areas of the District3. Improve regional economic development opportunities by providing

Educating more than 26,000 students each year, our colleges are hubs of teaching, learning and innovation in one of the most exciting cities in the world.
