The President’s Forum for Fall 2018 on Nov. 5 included updates and a look ahead at priorities and initiatives for the Hartnell Community College District, ranging from accreditation to strategic planning, college redesign, enrollment and budget.


Highlights included:

·         Progress on the Institutional Self-Evaluation Report for the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC), which will be up for approval by the College Planning Council on Dec. 11 and by the Hartnell Community College District Governing Board on Jan 2, followed by an ACCJC External Visiting Team at Hartnell on March 4-7.

·         An overview of Hartnell 2.0/College Redesign (Guided Pathways), to be implemented in 2019-20, with success depending heavily on active engagement by all employees and collaboration across our college community.

·         Hartnell’s strong student success gains in 2017-18, including a 159 percent increase in the number of degrees awarded since 2011-12 and a 63 percent increase in the number of transfers to the UC system, all with only a 1.6 percent enrollment gain during that period.
