Convocation - An Ode to Student Success

Convocation - An Ode to Student Success

 
 

Dr. Robert Zeigler opened with a hearty “good afternoon” as familiar faces of San Antonio College faculty and staff poured into the McAllister Auditorium on Monday, for the annual fall College Convocation. A resounding reply from the crowd brought the program to a start shortly after 2 p.m. as Dr. Zeigler turned the floor over to representatives of the five major shared governance groups.

New SGA President Andrew Hubbard spoke first; promising to continue working in collaboration with employees and to build upon established relationships. Then, bringing a humorous break to the sequence of introductions, Dr. Ellen Marshall (Early Childhood Development), Tammy Perez (Foreign Languages/ESL/Philosophy), and Bill Richardson (Kinesiology) offered their assistance as representatives of the Chairs Council. Other speakers included the new Staff Council President, Helen Torres; Dawn Elmore, Faculty Senate; and Dr. Liz Ann Aguilar, representing the Texas Community College Teachers Association.

 

Making his way through a State of the College presentation, Dr. Zeigler focused on student success initiatives. “Student success is everyone’s responsibility,” he said, “Whether we are on the front lines or not, we can’t forget about our daily interactions with students.”

The presentation included the requisite data points in order to inform the college community of overall academic progress. One of the most impressive figures presented was the number of credentials awarded in 2012. The number of degrees and certificates awarded by SAC increased significantly from only 1,326 in 2005 to 2,533 in 2012. In reference to the unquantifiable good that is being done around the college, he quoted Albert Einstein: “Everything that can be counted does not necessarily count; everything that counts cannot necessarily be counted.”

As the program was coming to an end, Dr. Zeigler outlined this year’s main goals. He introduced the newly named “Scobee Education Center” which will house the renovated Scobee Planetarium and the Challenger Learning Center. He also showed images of Tobin Lofts at San Antonio College, a new housing development for college students throughout San Antonio, which will open its doors to students Friday, August 23. He also spoke about the upcoming SACS Quality Enhancement Plan, or QEP, and the ongoing Foundations of Excellence initiative.

 “We must continue to work hard to maintain a university-like campus at SAC. We are not just turning out trained workers; we are turning out educated citizens,” Dr. Zeigler said. A thunderous applause welcomed this notion, and after a few questions, faculty and staff disbursed to enjoy refreshments before heading back to plan for the start of the semester.

Convocation Week takes place August 19-24 and will include various activities for faculty and staff to prepare for the Fall 2013 semester. A separate Convocation event will be held on Saturday, Aug. 24, for adjunct faculty.
