The MiraCosta College 2020-21 Annual Report themed “Behind Every Mask is a Face of Resilience” is ready to view online.
Additionally, a limited edition of the report was released to community members who attended the MiraCosta College’s Report to the Region and Open House that took place on the San Elijo Campus on Monday, November 8. A number of reports were also mailed to the homes and businesses of donors, community members, elected officials, and civic partners. To request a printed copy, please email email@example.com.
Dr. Sunita “Sunny” Cooke sets the foundation for the theme of resilience by opening with, “Unlike any other period in the history of this community, the last 18 months have been nothing less than surreal, uncertain, unprecedented, and beyond stressful. The global health crisis and economic challenges caused by the pandemic have affected us all. The lives lost, the livelihoods distressed, and the futures altered are almost unthinkable. Meanwhile, the issues of racial violence and oppression, which have persisted far too long, continue.” And continues with, “While our methods and modes of service evolved, our integrity and firm adherence to our values and goals remained aligned with our actions. Our commitment is to create a racially just campus where individuals and their diverse cultures and identities are welcomed, nurtured, and validated.”
The Annual Report highlights many of the accomplishments made by the District, staff, students, and alumni during the past year. Financials for both the District and the Foundation are shared, along with the list of valued donors.
“As a collective of faculty, classified professionals, administrators, board members, students, donors, and regional leaders, we supported one another as our vision to transform lives and communities through learning remained clear.”
Please enjoy reading the Annual Report and corresponding video production of the Annual Report.
