News and Events for the week of July 25

Good Monday Morning,  

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer. We remain busy on campus preparing for fall. Our second summer session is underway. Students can register now for online, hybrid and in-person fall classes. The fall schedule of classes is in the student portal at mycollege.laccd.edu.  

New Vice President Administrative Services

Our new Vice President Administrative Services, Joe Dominguez, starts today. We are very happy to welcome him aboard. I will be sending out a separate message introducing him to you. You will have an opportunity for a meet and greet with him in early September.  

TIES - Teen Innovation and Entrepreneurial Summer Program

Last Friday, students from LAUSD’s Linked Learning summer bridge programs at Gardena High School, Los Angeles Middle School, Sutter Middle School, Daniel Webster Middle School and Venice High School came together on our campus to present their business start-up plans to a panel of judges. The Teen Innovation and Entrepreneurial Summer (TIES) program enabled students to identify business challenges and develop products and services as solutions. It was a wonderful event, and we were proud to host these enterprising students. Media coverage of the event will be posted on our website soon. 

Summer Animation Bootcamp

Next week we will conclude a summer bootcamp on animation we have held for our local high school students. There are 48 students from various high schools in our area who have participated in this program, and I understand their work is amazing. I will see their final projects next week and I can’t wait! Thank you to Professor Khana for making this great opportunity happen for our community of artists.

COVID-19 Update

The COVID variants have increased the spread, so we are keeping our eyes out for what is happening in LA County. We will follow the guidelines of the LA Department of Public Health. Currently no indoor masking is required, but we will keep you updated on any changes. 


Have a great week! 

BELIEVE. ACHIEVE. SUCCEED. Let’s look forward to an August filled with lots of interested folks wanting to attend LACC!   

In partnership for student success,
Mary
