News and Events for the week of October 4

Good Monday Morning,

Our enrollment is holding steady at 89% of Fall 2020 and 84% of Fall 2021. We are challenged with reconnecting effectively with our students. We continue to work on it. Last week when we had consultation with our campus leadership groups, we solicited input from our groups for ideas about reconnecting with students. We welcome your suggestions. You can comment through our hotlines: hotline-staff@lacitycollege.edu or hotline-faculty@lacitycollege.edu.

Continue to be sure to practice self-care. The numbers are improving in LA County and the spread of the Delta strain of COVID-19 is slowing. Keep wearing your mask. It is helping! 

BELIEVE. ACHIEVE. SUCCEED. Have a great week!

Stay well. Get vaccinated.
