Message from the Vice President for Academic and Student Success

Best wishes for a happy, healthy and peaceful new year.  I look forward to a productive 2019.

In order to have important information available in one area, we have developed an easy access website. Information you will find at the division’s website addresses topics such as grades, exams and technology training; emergencies and fire drills; links to documents such as the Student Handbook; Enrollment Guide and service hours for various student services; as well as information regarding Starfish Connect, our academic early alert system. Please note that the website also contains information pertaining to the College’s continued work on Guided Pathways. Please review this site throughout the semester, as we will update regularly with additional information.

The contributions of all faculty, staff, and administrators are integral to the work we do at the College. I look forward to a productive semester ahead as we work collaboratively toward our commitment and focus on academic excellence and student success.

Thank you and best wishes for a rewarding spring semester!

Dr. Samuel Hirsch
Vice President for Academic and Student Success

The Division of Academic and Student Success is pleased to announce the expansion of its website to include more information on Guided Pathways. As the College continues its progress with implementing Guided Pathways, it is important that information on the work being done is available to faculty, staff, administrators, students, and the community. The link is available at the divisions website and also on the landing page for faculty and staff in MyCCP under All About Guided Pathways:

The Guided Pathways website encompasses all components of the Pathways reform: Academic Pathways and Programs (with links to program course sequence grids); the Intake Process; Academic Advising and Student Success; Developmental Education; and Leveraging Technology. There is also a link to information about the Guided Pathways Core Team and another to numerous resources. 

The support and hard work of the entire College community are necessary to these efforts. Please visit the Guided Pathways website often, as it will be updated with news and developments regarding the continued work of the College to increase student success via the Guided Pathways initiative.
