Leadership and staff came together for a virtual joint session with their IEBC coach to review the work and implementation, monitoring and communication plans; to ensure the work continues, to hold ourselves accountable, and to share the behavioral commitments and efforts with our college community. The Caring Campus team in collaboration with the leadership team, faculty and classified professionals will continue the work of implementing and monitoring the behavioral commitments.

The objective of the Caring Campus Initiative is to increase student success in community colleges by creating and cultivating Caring Campus environments through the intentional inclusion of all staff in student success efforts. We will communicate and collaborate with departments and divisions to develop a strategy, grounded in the behavioral commitments, that they can easily implement.

  • Students who feel connected to their colleges are more likely to be successful each semester and more likely to achieve their educational goals.
  • Providing an environment where a student feels genuinely welcome and genuinely cared about creates change that can positively impact racial and economic inequities.
  • In these times more than ever, it's critical that we are consistent and intentional in our commitments across our college and that we foster a culture of caring for Skyline College.
  • From the first impression to their daily experiences, it is important that students aren’t just told that they are valued – but that they FEEL valued and connected.
