    Jones elected to HERDI South advisory board 

    Jones, BrendaSan Jacinto College Provost, Dr. Brenda Jones, was recently elected to the advisory board of the Higher Education Research and Development Institute (HERDI) South.

    HERDI facilitates frank and critical dialogue between community colleges and the business communities that seek to serve them.

    Surplus items available through online auction system 

    San Jacinto College employees:

    Effective this fiscal year, 2016, San Jacinto College will begin using an online auction system managed by Lone Star Auctioneers to dispose of its surplus non-computer property.  Previously, the College used a site auction service to dispose of surplus which limited buyer accessibility as well as profits.  This process has been abandoned in an attempt to gain greater revenue for the College by reaching a larger audience of potential buyers through an online system.

    At this time, the auction will continue utilizing the same disposal process.  Once an item is cleared for auction, it will be stored at our central location, currently in the old natatorium on Central Campus.  After items are placed in our central location for storage, the College staff will have one last opportunity to repurpose these assets.  Auxiliary Services will provide periodic notices that lists the items available via the P: drive.   Auxiliary Services will place these surplus items up for auction after a period of time.  By using this new system, the college hopes to increase revenues generated from its surplus sales.

    Auxiliary Services, specifically, Richard Serna, will be responsible for the online auction process.  He can be emailed at DL- Surplus Property and the three scheduled auctions are listed below. He can also be reached by phone at (281) 922-3465. Since this is specialized equipment, the items were not placed on the P: drive to be repurposed. Please make sure to take a look at our first auction, which goes live tomorrow at http://www.lonestaronline.com/listings/categories/index.cfm?category=1403184924.
