As we continue our work at the Colleges and District Office, including advancing equitable success on a variety of fronts, it is important to know where the Coast District is today. To that end, over the next few months, there will be several surveys going out to faculty, classified and confidential staff, management, and others.

I am aware that this is an ask of your time, one intended to be manageable – as the different surveys should take between five and 30 minutes to complete. With multiple surveys, you may feel as if we are asking too many questions. I want to assure you that your answers are needed for the Colleges and District Office to succeed together.

Your participation in all surveys is important and appreciated. You voice will help the Coast District become an even better place for us and our students to live, learn, work, and thrive.

Be well,


John Weispfenning, Ph.D.
