 DARE Evolves...

DARE Colleagues,

First, a thank you for your commitment and engagement in DARE over the past year or, in many cases, years.


With the integration of Basic Skills, Student Equity and Student Success and Support Services, the foundation that DARE established has evolved and we are seeking faculty and classified representatives to serve on the BSI-SSSP-SE Advisory Committee (Draft Integrated plan)If you are interested in the opportunity to serve, please reach out to your appropriate Senate (Classified or Academic).

Again, as we bring the DARE Taskforce to a close and take a look back, the work of faculty and staff shines through so clearly and it is evident that our students have been central to our efforts and will continue to benefit from such collaborative work.


Lorrie Ranck,

DARE Co-Chair  &

Assoc. Vice President, Instruction
