Dr. Andreea Serban, superintendent/president of SBCC, has been appointed board president for the nonprofit consortia California Colleges for International Education.

Her term will run from July 1, 2010, through June 30, 2012.

CCIE has a membership of 84 California community colleges, including SBCC, and serves as an advocate and clearinghouse for international education activities such as study abroad, recruitment of international students, international exchanges and partnerships, and policy and legal issues related to these types of programs and activities.

CCIE also advises both the California State Chancellor’s Office and the Community College League of California on issues related to California community college international education.

“All community college students need the ability to interact in a multicultural world, regardless if they plan to transfer to a four-year university or enter the work force,” said Dr. Joe Dobbs, SBCC district board president. “Dr. Serban is uniquely qualified to lead this consortia, and I know this statewide group will greatly benefit from her leadership skills and expertise.”

— Joan Galvan is a public information officer for SBCC.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
