Hope you are enjoying that September weather and maybe some football since the season is underway!!   If you listened to the Texans’ game on the radio today, you heard many commercials for San Jacinto College.

The week began with the September Board of Trustees Meeting.  The agenda and back-up of each meeting are posted on the college’s website on the Friday prior to the meeting.  If you have a few moments, review this information.  It is another avenue for employees to gain an understanding of college activities and issues.   You will find that many of the actions are finance and construction related, but you will also see the Board’s focus on the college’s Student Success agenda, with a portion of the meeting dedicated to presentations around this area.

We are reaching the end of June, and the realization just hit me that 2009 is half over.  It is amazing how fast life moves, and each of us must find the time to relax, reflect. and smell the roses.  I hope you find some time today.

This week I received a demonstration of the web refresh project.  Information gathering for this project has been in the works for months through focus groups and interviews with SJC employees and students.  The purpose of the project is to redesign the college website using the “WOW” factor.   The new site will be interactive, organized for students, less cluttered but with more information available, and with enhanced search capabilities.  Processes such as the application and payment will be simplified and more user friendly, as will the ability to update and change pages by departments. The site will be tested by students and employees during July and August and will be rolled out no later than October.   I know you will be very impressed with what you see.  Thank you to everyone who has worked on this project – the result is a website that will be first class!!
