The article posted today concerning Fall enrollments at MSJC.
“Total enrollment for the college rose about 10.6 percent since last year to 10,600″ Bill Marchese, MSJC spokesman
“Enrollment at the college’s Temecula locations has fallen by more than 15 percent. MSJC rents rooms at a few local high schools in Temecula to hold evening classes in the city. Day-time classes are more popular right now than evening classes.” Bill Marchese, MSJC spokesman
Are Temecula enrollments down due to less class sections being offered in the high school requiring students to travel to Menifee? Or, are we serving an increase in young adult students, less likely to hold full time jobs and able to attend class during the day?
“Kudos”…..this is good news for MSJC and a continuation of the direction of Mark Zacovic’s leadership from last year.
Under Richard Giese, MSJC permanently lost, $10,000,000 in unearned and available growth funding at the state table for all future years. Five of six years, Richard Giese could not make state growth targets while Trustees Kadow and Sparkman supported and defended his performance. They honored and named Richard Giese “President Emeritus” and fired Zacovic while MSJC enrollments were the highest in the state! Go figure.
The college is on track and meeting targets with leadership from VP Pam Deegan, hired by Mark Zacovic in 2006. Thank you Mark Zacovic.
