Letter to the Editor: SBCC President Lori Gaskin Says Thank You

To friends of Santa Barbara City College:

Four weeks ago, I assumed the presidency of SBCC, and I feel a strong need to offer a heartfelt “thank you” to our community for the warmth, welcome and kindness you have extended to me.

It’s evident that SBCC is beloved by all of you, and I can readily understand why. With our first-rate faculty, dedicated staff, expansive course offerings and heritage of academic excellence, SBCC stands as an inclusive gateway to higher education. It is with enormous pride that I am able to serve a community who so clearly believes in education and in SBCC.

I feel equally honored to serve my SBCC colleagues as we collectively navigate this time of change, challenge and opportunities.

SBCC opens doors. We help to create bright futures. We fuel aspirations. We actualize our students’ potential. We help to make dreams become reality.

For believing in us and for caring, I thank you.

In gratitude,

Lori Gaskin, Ph.D., president
Santa Barbara City College

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!
