Mesa College Seeks Community Input to Educational Master Plan

San Diego Mesa College will unveil and discuss outcomes of a year-long educational master planning process at 5:30 p.m. in Rooms CE 118-120 on Wed., Feb. 26 at the Continuing Education facility at the east gateway entrance to the college off Mesa College Drive.

For more than a year, Mesa College faculty and staff have worked diligently to complete its Educational Master Plan.

The college’s Office of Institutional Effectiveness has conducted more than 50 separate workshops with faculty, staff and students to inform the Educational Master Plan. Attendees provided input on the kinds of learning and work spaces and facilities they would like to see, how to improve services to students, and how the college can grow and change to address future learners and workforce needs.

“We went to the heart of Mesa to take the pulse of Mesa – where we stand now, how we can grow and best utilize our tremendous new facilities, and where we need to be as an institution to serve San Diegans in the near future,” said Dr. Pamela T. Luster, President.

“With these outcomes in hand, we are now ready to inform -- and be informed -- by our neighbors, and the community we serve,” she added.

Topics of discussion at the Feb. 26th community forum will include: academic programs of study; workforce certificates and training; economic growth in our region, four-year community college degrees, new opportunities for students, and new facilities and changes.

Dr. Anthony Beebe, President of Continuing Education, San Diego Community College District, will also be on hand to talk about community opportunities and involvement at the Mesa College continuing education center. 

Community members are encouraged to attend. Mesa College will be conducting webinars with educators and community partners in March.
