Welcome to the College Success Initiative (a.k.a. the Basic Skills Initiative) Project at Skyline College! Our mission is to develop and implement a comprehensive developmental education program that will facilitate the transition of students into and through degree, certificate, and transfer courses and programs.
With funding provided by the California Community Colleges Systems Office, Skyline faculty and staff are working hard to design and implement projects that fulfill Skyline's CSI mission. Widespread faculty and staff involvement is vital to the success of this project, hence the convening of the Steering and Coordinating Committees. Faculty and staff are also welcome to participate in specific projects by inquiring with the appropriate lead people.
The projects are presently underway, building upon the self-study conducted by over 75 Skyline faculty and staff in Fall 2007, and the planning phase taking place in Spring 2008. To get an overview, check out the graphics that show how the projects are interconnected, as well as how professional development informs the work that we're engaged in.
