We know that two driving forces – an actively engaged teaching and learning environment and an explicitly lived culture of student success – contribute to the exemplary record of student achievement at PVCC. We institutionally measure this success in a variety of formats (Board Outcomes, FTSE, persistence, completion, etc.), more importantly we measure our success in the transformation of student lives though the gift of lifelong learning.
As we move closer to the 45th Day of the semester – at which time we begin to calculate our annual FTSE (thus driving our future budgets) – I want to take this opportunity to offer my deepest and heartfelt thank you for all of your relentless good work to ensure that our students are successful and engaged both in- and out-of-the-classroom.
For the past three years we have pushed for new and innovative ways to improve student access and success (Start Almost Anytime, expanding online learning, Puma Pathway, and Critical Thinking Academy) and these efforts are making a positive difference.
Thank you for embracing a culture of innovation and for your tireless commitment to making PVCC simply the best. Your good work is reflected in the positive futures of each and every one of our students.
Job well done.
