Good Afternoon San Jacinto College Community,

As you may be aware, San Jacinto College implemented a Recognition Program in the Fall of 2016.  One aspect of the program was the creation of the Monument Award which is given in recognition of outstanding team performance.

Eligibility included those full and part-time employees who had significant involvement in the accomplishment of a project, process or initiative.  The team must have exemplified sustained, exceptional performance above and beyond expectations for the completion of deliverables identified in the annual priorities or strategic goals.   Read the rest of this entry »

Good Afternoon!

I hope all of you got through April 15th (tax day) okay. I was surprised to hear that only 7% of Americans file an extension for their taxes!

As we think about this past week, I know each of us has been saddened by the incidents in Boston and West, Texas. My thoughts and prayers are with all of the victims and those directly and indirectly impacted.

These events and the event at Lone Star College last week continue to weigh heavy on each of us. Even though the incident at Lone Star College was across Houston, we received many phone calls and questions from concerned students and employees. We issued a statement that San Jacinto College was not under an immediate threat so we could alleviate those concerns. Read the rest of this entry »

Guiding Principles from September 19, 2012 Update:

Some of the Performance Management processes and forms have been simplified. I want to share the guiding principles that were used in making decisions for the performance management continuous improvements:

  • All decisions must support the One-College vision.
  • Changes must work for all employees (faculty, staff, and administrators).
  • Approach must work the same for all campuses and all functions.
  • Decisions must streamline the process.
  • Processes and forms should be user-friendly and take less time to complete.

Good Evening San Jacinto Community! And to our Veterans on this day of remembrance, thank you for your service, dedication, and sacrifice.

I hope many of you joined in the Veterans Day activities this weekend, including the events at each campus last Friday. I spent Sunday calling my family members who have served our country, and I also let them know that they will be honored with a plaque on the Wall of Honor at our San Jacinto College Veterans Centers. If you are interested in honoring or memorializing someone, contact Ruth Keenan at the Foundation office (ruth.keenana@sjcd.edu). Read the rest of this entry »

Good Morning San Jacinto College Employees –

I know each of you is working diligently on your Individual Performance Plan for 2012-2013. As you continue with this process, I want to clarify changes and enhancements surrounding the performance management system.

Under the “Our People” goal, the Strategic Leadership Team (SLT) has been focused on continuous improvement initiatives, including enhancing and simplifying the performance management (PM) system.

Good Morning San Jacinto College Community –

We are rounding out July and summer classes and aggressively preparing for fall. As I mentioned earlier in the month, there is nothing moving slowly for us. Rather, we are moving at high speeds to process, package, orient, test, enroll, and register 5,500 first-time-in-college (FTIC) students and another 25,000 in returning student for the fall semester. Along with these activities, we are

  • finalizing the annual priorities and budget for 2012-2013,
  • closing out the evaluation process,
  • hiring new faculty and staff to support our student success initiatives, 
  • conducting a variety of trainings including department chair and Success at San Jac, and
  • closing out the 2011-2012 fiscal year.
