Throughout the pandemic, Fresno City College has continually assessed the needs of students and employees to deliver educational opportunities without interruption. Lessons learned include that the use of technology can provide services and instruction to students and maintain the efficient operation of the college through online measures.
While many of these measures will continue, Fresno City College President Dr Carole Goldsmith says the college also will accommodate the students who are eager to get back to campus. “I believe the online education opportunity really worked well for a lot of our students, as evidenced by our increasing graduation rates. So, we're going to continue to provide some online, but we also know that we really need to have some on ground activities and classes too.”
An emphasis on wellness is still a priority. Hand sanitation stations will be increased and current mask regulations will be followed. Mental health services will also be expanded.
Dr. Goldsmith encourages people to enroll now in classes to be prepared for the future. “When we look at the jobs that really flourished and continue to flourish both pre and post pandemic, those are the jobs that require some college education or career technical certification. While many students may be interested in taking classes, whether it's one class or two, they need to continue to invest in themselves, because one thing that we know is that the greatest gift you can give yourself is an education,” she said.
