From Chancellor Marvin Martinez
I hope that each of you and your loved ones are safe and well. While this has been a trying time for all, you have truly risen to the occasion and together we have accomplished more than we ever thought possible in a mere two-and-a-half weeks. I could not be more proud of our faculty and staff’s extraordinary efforts to transition to temporary remote instruction, as well as the resiliency of our students to wholeheartedly continue their studies.
As we approach a much needed spring break next week, I wanted to inform you that following discussions with the college presidents and Academic Senates,
we have made the decision to extend temporary remote instruction through the remainder of the Spring semester. Of course, no one knows exactly when Governor Newsom’s stay-at-home order will be lifted and when it will be safe to return to our normal activities. What we do know, however, is that based on our student and faculty surveys, the majority feel that temporary remote instruction is working. This does not mean it is working perfectly in all areas. We are reviewing and discussing the recommendations and concerns that our students and faculty voiced in the surveys and will continue to work towards making improvements every day.
Please note that we are carefully considering our plans for the summer session and will inform you of this decision once you return from spring break.
I hope you are able to enjoy the break next week. I know that we could all use a breather. Please stay safe and we will continue to get through this together.
