Online course enrollment saw the biggest enrollment increase with more than 20,000 “seats” sold—a 17% increase over last Spring Quarter. Enrollments at the off-campus sites were down overall by 17.5 percent, with increases seen only at the Marysville, Bolton Field and Tolles Technical Center sites.


Two Professional Development series offered 

Two professional development series—one for supervisors and one open to all employees—are being offered at no cost to employees or their departments.

The series for all employees includes sessions on communication, conflict management, emotional intelligence and career development.

The series for supervisors will focus on the essentials of leadership, building an environment of trust, setting performance expectations, managing performance problems, and delegating for results. 

Additional information about the classes and links to register can be found here:
