My Top 3 Priorities

  • Institute continous improvement practices so MPC will never again be put on probation and be at-risk of losing its accreditation.
  • Ensure MPC successfully performs under the new Student Centered Funding Formula by attracting and supporting low-income, first generation, and students of color to complete a degree or certificate program in three or less years.
  • Expand course offerings at the Marina Education Center to increase opportunities for students and grow revenue for the college.
