I think that Glendale Community College is a premiere college that serves the needs of the community. I believe that we need to continue to improve and pursue excellence. We can do this by focusing on student success. We must continue to budget adequately in the areas of student support services in order to facilitate a greater success rate: good counseling, computer labs, tutoring, a comfortable and friendly learning environment. We must continue to offer classes at a variety of times to recognize that the majority of our students work part- or full-time. We must enforce regular faculty evaluations in order to provide our students with the highest quality of instruction. We must reach out to the community to assess if there is a need and sufficient demand for new class offerings.
College employees have raised concerns that the Board of Trustees has a tendency to micromanage. How involved should trustees be in managing and organizing operations at the college?
