San Jose-Evergreen Community College District's Economic Impact
WHERE WE WANT TO GO
Wendy is committed to making Evergreen Valley College and San Jose City College premiere institutions that the community and Silicon Valley employers demand. She plans to focus on the following areas based on the Board's Ends Policies to ensure that SJECCD students are prepared for the next stage in life.
The Ends policies are STUDENT SUCCESS and COMMUNITY IMPACT.
The San Jose-Evergreen Community College District will improve student success through enhanced educational services and programs and strengthened community engagement.
All students, especially under-prepared students, will achieve academic success sufficient to transfer to a four-year post-secondary institution.
Students will develop the language skills to succeed in college, the ability to analyze, synthesize, and evaluate information, and will be able to effectively communicate with others and successfully work collaboratively in culturally diverse settings.
Enrichment opportunities will exist to enhance the learning environment and support student success.
Degree and Certificate Completion
Students will complete degrees and certificates to enter the workforce.
As a leader in the Silicon Valley, the San Jose-Evergreen Community College District will be an active partner with civic and other community leaders to create a strong economy and foster social-economic equity and social justice.
Students will acquire skills sufficient to get, keep and progress in jobs with local employers, particularly in high wage/high growth areas for all students, especially for: under-prepared students; older displaced students; and young people at the start of their careers.
Community, Business, Industry and Trades Partnerships/Collaborations
The District will collaborate with business, industry, and the trades to increase employment opportunities in quality jobs through job placement, internships, mentorships and philanthropic development.
