Chancellor Christian reflects her
commitment to California students
Greetings Colleagues and Friends of CVHEC,
Greetings and welcome to this beautiful fall weather as we prepare for the upcoming holiday season and the end of the fall semester.
We are delighted to report that we are coming off a very successful Central Valley Higher Education Consortium Summit 2023 held at the Fresno convention Center Oct. 20 when we were joined by over 150 of our friends and colleagues to showcase the work of consortium member colleges and universities over the last year.
As expected, her presentation was inspiring and reflected her commitment to students in the state. Dr. Christian took this opportunity at the summit to announce and launch the CCCCO Central Valley Transfer Pathways Demonstration Project that will build upon the progress of our own Transfer Project partnership between the community colleges, the CSUs and UC Merced here in the valley. The CCCCO project is unique in California in that it includes the three segments of public colleges and universities and will eventually include the independent universities as well.
In this issue’s “What the CV-HEC is happening” blog, you will read an update about CVHEC’s innovative approach to delivering college dual enrollment math courses for high school students throughout the region via our Math Bridge project in partnership with CVHEC partner, College Bridge. The project, designed to get high school students through their first gateway college math course, will serve as a springboard for completing their degrees.
Also please plan on attending the virtual zoom San Joaquin Valley Affordable Internet Adoption Summit on Thursday, Nov. 9, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The deadline to register is Nov. 7 at: https://bit.ly/SJVSummitRSVP. Bringing affordable broadband internet services to the most vulnerable populations in the Central Valley is an important part of the work CVHEC does in the valley.
Finally, enjoy our summit photo galleries where we share images and comments about the recent CVHEC summit as well as the board meeting and reception they day before. I am sure you will see many familiar faces.
Have a great November and a wonderful and restful Thanksgiving Holiday with family and friends!
