      Serving as the Volunteer Coordinator for the event was a true blessing. Of the 297 volunteers present, over 100 of the volunteers were from SJCN—this speaks for itself as to how dedicated our campus family is to our community.

    New race / ethnicity survey in SOS 

    As you may be aware, the U.S. government adopted new standards for institutions to report ethnicity and race information to the federal government and state reporting agencies.

    Educational institutions are required to begin reporting using the new ethnicity and race data in the 2010-2011 year. In support of the data collection effort for reporting, San Jacinto College will survey all active employees via SOS beginning Monday, August 9, 2010.

    We ask that all employees login to their SOS account prior to September 30, 2010 and complete this survey. When you login to SOS, the survey will appear automatically.  Please note that employees are required to complete this survey. The survey contains two questions.  The first question will ask employees to identify their ethnicity and the second question will ask for race(s) to be selected.  One or more races may be selected from the multiple options.

    If you need help with your SOS login, please contact TechSupport at extension 6137. However, if you have questions regarding the survey, please contact the Human Resources office at extension 6115.

    Thank you for supporting our data collection efforts for federal and state reporting.

    SJC hosts Texas Higher Education IR/IT Forum 

    On Thursday, July 22, 2010, San Jacinto College hosted the Texas Higher Education IR/IT  Forum. What started as a small event (anticipation of about 12 guests) turned into a large event with more than 50 people in  attendance from several two- and four-year institutions, as well as the Texas Higher Education  Coordinating Board (THECB).

    This large response shows the interest and  need for understanding data and consistency in reporting to help higher  education institutions make better decisions. Several participants  representing information technology (IT) and institutional  research (IR) departments commented on the need for these two reporting  departments to collaborate. Representatives from human resources, continuing education, and financial aid also attended, and the groups came together to share best  practices for this business intelligence tool. Other institutions represented include Texas  A&M University – Kingsville, Tarleton State University, Steven F.  Austin University, and Houston Community College.

    Congratulations to  our own IT and aSPIRE offices who collaborated to bring this conference to our college,  and facilitate the exchange of ideas on higher education reporting to  fruition.
