Critical Conversation with CCC Vice Chancellor Van Ton-Quinlivan 11-2 at Foothill College

It is my pleasure to invite you to a Critical Conversation with our California Community College Vice Chancellor Van Ton-Quinlivan on Friday, November 2, from 10:30-12:30. The San Mateo Community College District is co-hosting this event with Foothill College. We will convene at Foothill College, follow link for details of Invitation. Please RSVP to John Mummert at Foothill ( ) to reserve your lunch, and to (electronically) receive a parking pass and map.

Van Ton-Quinlivan is traveling around the state to hear from us. She will present: Doing What Matters for Jobs and the Economy, the Chancellor’s office campaign for Community Colleges to close the skills gap between what employers need and what workers have. “Vice Chancellor Ton-Quinlivan and her team have hit on what it will take to bring these relationships forward between business, our community and our colleges so every student, and therefore our state, will benefit,” Chancellor Jack Scott said. “Students in our Career Technical Education programs have historically shown better completion rates and their incomes grow rapidly once their new-found skills and talents are paired with businesses looking for skilled workers.”  The Workforce and Economic Development division collaborates with employers, organized labor, local communities, the community colleges and others on programs supported by a variety of state and federal funding sources. Through its Doing What Matters for Jobs and Economy initiative, the division has refocused on regional sectors, is taking effective workforce development practices to scale, and removing barriers to student completion.
