    Important – UHC Vision/Spectera Coverage Change 

    On behalf of Human Resources

    The Employees Retirement System (ERS) of Texas now offers a State of Texas vision plan that is comparable to the UHC Spectera plan that the college offers.  Due to legislative restrictions, we cannot offer competing vision plans; therefore, employees who are currently enrolled in the  UHC Vision/Spectera plan will have their coverage terminated effective 8/31/18.

    If you would like to continue supplemental vision coverage, you will have the opportunity to elect the State of Texas vision plan through ERS during our annual enrollment period this summer.  More information regarding the dates and times of annual enrollment will be released in the coming months.

    Please contact HR Benefits if you have any questions.

    Thank you for your work with Mind Trekkers/Adventures in STEM 2018 

    From Dr. Allatia Harris, Vice Chancellor, Strategic Initiatives


    Dear San Jac Family,

    I just wanted to take a moment to thank the many members of the San Jac family who made Adventures in STEM/Mind Trekkers 2018 such a success. We received so many compliments from our schools, with most saying this was the best Mind Trekkers yet. They thanked us for being “kid friendly,” keeping the kids safe, providing so many activities. I stopped in a Deer Park CVS on the way home and saw one of the 6th graders from the day. (He was still wearing his school shirt.) I asked if he had fun, and his mom proceeded to tell me how much fun he had, which experiments he liked best and that he could explain the science behind it. This year, our industry partners not only supported the event financially but also with volunteers who spent time with students during the event. (More …)
