Hello San Jacinto College Community – 

Did you enjoy the “fall back” this weekend? Even though I slept in, I felt like I accomplished more than on a “normal” day and had a little extra spunk! Let’s see how long it lasts!

On Monday, we had our monthly Board workshop and meeting. At the workshop, the focus was on strategic goal #3, Workforce and Economic Development. We reviewed a detailed report completed by the Workforce and Economic Development Council which included a SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats) assessment, review of major workforce sectors in our region, and recommendations for enhancing our efforts in the workforce training area. Additionally, we reviewed the institutional monitoring report on our Continuing Professional Development division; our non-credit offerings cover such areas as leisure/lifelong learning, workforce training, and business and professions. As part of this report, we reviewed various key performance indicators related to industry partnerships, workforce grant activities, new program developments, and small business support activities. If you are interested in reviewing the reports, they can be viewed here:
