Good Morning San Jacinto College Community!

Stephen Trncak, Vice Chancellor, Human Resources (VCHR) has announced his intent to retire effective at the end of December 2018, after 10 years of service to San Jacinto College. I would like to thank Stephen for his service to the College and as the VCHR for his leadership as the strategic architect in providing the College with a human resources plan for organizational sustainability. Steve has been a champion for the people side of the College, and he has focused the Human Resources Department (HR) on recruiting, retaining, and developing our employees. His broad strategic, business, and operational acumen outside of HR has been a tremendous benefit to the College.

Steve and his team have implemented many foundational and leading-edge initiatives that have brought the College alignment and outcomes. Some of these areas include the development of the Board mandated accountability-based performance management system, merit pay, market-based compensation, leadership and employee development programs, enhanced recruiting efforts, benefit plan offerings, HRIS (Human Resource Information Systems) automation, and continuity planning. Steve has been an advocate for the College’s Strategic Goal of “Our People” because he knows that the College’s employees are what differentiate San Jacinto College from our peers and our competitors.

I would like to announce that I am appointing Sandra Ramirez as Vice Chancellor, Human Resources, Organizational and Talent Effectiveness effective January 1, 2019. This appointment provides continuity for the human resources senior leadership and consistency in the pursuit of the “Our People” Strategic Goal. Sandra joined San Jacinto College eight years ago after an extensive career in industry and currently serves as the Vice President, Human Resources. In her current position she is accountable for the oversight of recruitment, selection, employment, compensation, benefits, employee relations, performance management, HRIS, and records management.

Sandra has over 25 years of experience in human resources and has held positions of increasing responsibility throughout her career. She holds a Master of Arts degree in Human Resources from the University of Houston – Clear Lake and received her Bachelor of Business Administration in Human Resources from the University of Texas at San Antonio. Sandra holds both Senior Professional Human Resources (SPHR) and Senior Certified Professional (SHRM-SCP) certifications and is also a Six Sigma Green Belt.

Please join me in congratulating Sandra in her new role.
