Partnerships with local businesses, industry, public/private sectors to develop/adopt programs at Glendale Community College must increase. Glendale Community College has joint programs with Cal State Northridge, and discussions are in the works with the Glendale Unified School District and Los Angeles community colleges. The college's garage photovoltaic solar panels resulted from collaborating with Glendale Water & Power, through which green energy is directed to Glendale Community College .
Close networking with generous donors results in additional funds. Our Glendale Community College Foundation is an excellent source as, through their efforts, Bhupesh Parikh donated $1 million for naming the Allied Health Building after his family.
Financial aid for our students from public/private donors is welcomed. Last year, our students received more than $350,000 in financial aid/scholarships.
