A Message from the


Anthony E. Beebe, Ph.D., Ed.D. Superintendent/President

I AM PLEASED TO SHARE WITH YOU OUR FIRST ANNUAL REPORT TO THE COMMUNITY! Since coming to Santa Barbara City College a year ago, I have made it a priority for the College to strengthen our ties to our community. In order to achieve this, we have sought input from across our Community College District and have plans in place to be more responsive to the needs in our community. Santa Barbara City College has been a local institution since 1909 and has a rich history of educating generations in our local community. Our college has become an integral part of past, present and future generations of Santa Barbara County residents. This history of excellence has been evident in the stories of former students who achieved their educational goals and in those who continue their City College education. SBCC continues to be recognized as the No.1 community college in the nation—both a testament to the caliber and dedication of our students and our team of faculty and staff.

OUR VISION Santa Barbara City College strives to build a socially conscious community where knowledge and respect empower individuals to transform our world.

This report represents my first year as President of this fine educational institution. I am proud of the work we do—changing the world, one student at a time. This has been a year of change and reflection at the college. We are moving forward with a wide range of initiatives that seek to strengthen our ties to the community and look to the future to ensure we continue to meet the needs of future students.

OUR MISSION As a public community college dedicated to the success of each student... Santa Barbara City College provides students a diverse learning environment

We hope this Report to the Community gives you insight into the many achievements accomplished throughout the 2016-2017 academic school year. Our students, faculty and staff have excelled through their hard work and dedication to the college.

that inspires curiosity and discovery, promotes global responsibility, and fosters opportunity for all.

We are grateful to be in beautiful Santa Barbara, with distinguished faculty, dedicated staff, and a commitment to our students and community—lucky us! Thank you for your continued support of our community’s college. Together onward, Anthony E. Beebe, Ph.D., Ed.D. Superintendent/President
