The President's Council was established in 2000 as a key resource for shaping Skyline College’s future. Comprised of dedicated community leaders, the Council actively supports the college and its mission to empower and transform a global community of learners through direct fundraising and insightful counsel.
The President’s Council includes representatives from business, industry, government, nonprofits and other organizations whose unique backgrounds form a strong foundation of knowledge and support for the President of Skyline College. The purpose of the President's Council is to provide community input, feedback and support to generate innovative resource development at Skyline College.
While the President’s Council meets regularly to provide counsel to the President of Skyline College, they also spearhead two major events each year:
Each spring, the members of the President’s Council raise financial support for the President's Innovation Fund and the Promise Scholars Program by hosting the President's Breakfast. This event brings together hundreds of individuals from around the community for a program aimed at highlighting the accomplishments of Skyline College over the past year – it’s one of the primary ways the College reports out how it benefits the community it serves. Funds raised at the breakfast support the President’s Innovation Fund and the Promise Scholars Program.
Launched in 2012, the annual Success Summit challenges local business leaders and community members to delve into the challenges that face our community – and generate solutions that can begin to address them. Community members from the business, nonprofit, civic, academic, and government sectors are invited to participate in interactive discussions on themes significant to North San Mateo County.
