Year-End Message from Dean Tarver Behring

As we move into the final weeks of this most unprecedented year of virtual instruction, we celebrate all members of our college community for their resiliency, commitment, and outstanding performance. A special congratulations to our credential candidates and graduates who are completing their programs! We are a mighty college and have continued to shine through the clouds of COVID-19.

The future looks hopeful as we receive indicators from the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health that the pandemic is easing.. The beginning of fall semester will still see the majority of our classes remaining in a virtual format and on-campus COVID protocols and social distancing safety requirements will continue. However, we anticipate safety requirements to be eased as we move through the semester, and with vaccines now universally available, we can expect ongoing relaxing of COVID protocols. With this in mind, we believe that some classes may elect to hold in-person class sessions later in the Fall 2021 semester depending on student and faculty circumstances. The fall schedule can now be viewed at the online class schedule.  For the most updated information, please check with the course instructor at the beginning of the semester about the manner in which the class sessions will be offered. Please note that we plan to move the majority of our classes to an in-person format in the Spring 2022 semester, as long as safety permits this.

Though we could not hold our usual in-person graduation and completion ceremonies this semester, we look forward to celebrating with you in person in the future when possible. In the meantime, our college is still committed to celebrating everyone who completed their programs. Each department put together some kind of virtual celebration for their students, such as congratulatory videos, special messages on their websites and social media platforms, and mailed completion packets.
