Message from the President
A new college year is underway. Fall semester has brought changes, such as the move of the Aviation Maintenance Technology program from Hollister to a temporary location at the Gilroy campus. The new location seems to be appealing to students, who have filled the AMT classes. We also celebrate completion of the Measure E remodeling for the cosmetology and business buildings, and the return of those programs to their new and improved locations. The final Measure E-funded campus project is now underway with the renovation of the Social Sciences building. We continue to evaluate alternatives to expand instructional space in Hollister, so that we may gain Educational Center status (and funding) for campus development. Fall classes are full, but slightly fewer, due to the state-mandated elimination of noncredit activity classes for older adults. We are still serving more students than are being funded by the state overall, and will have to adjust the Spring class schedule to reflect this funding reality. Faculty are working hard to maintain a wide selection of classes and sections which are most needed by students. Although we are still awaiting a state budget for the current fiscal year, we are pleased to report that the 2009-2010 Gavilan College budget closed with a surplus, rather than the deficit that was projected. With the uncertainty still surrounding the current year’s budget we may have to make additional cuts to achieve a balanced budget for 2010-2011. The good news is we have options that will protect services to students and employees’ jobs. In addition, several grant applications have been submitted which could make up the difference. We will continue to evaluate each vacant position to determine whether or not it should be filled – however, we are in a strong enough position to lift the “hiring freeze” that was in effect last year. Our priority is student success. Gavilan College is part of the California Alliance for Student Success (CLASS), a commitment by twelve selected colleges. The focus is identifying strategies for keeping students in the classroom and helping them graduate. This summer we looked at what colleges have done to bring successful programs out of the pilot stage to implementation across the college. Gavilan College has formed a Learning Council of faculty, administrators and professional support staff to institutionalize a commitment to success. As the year unfolds, you can expect to hear more about CLASS and the Student Success Initiative.
