Wednesday General Session: SLC and HLC

Dr. Greg Gillespie will introduce the Student Council (SLC).

The SLC would like to invite faculty, staff, administration and members of the Yavapai College community to discuss issues related to course offering. Topics such as online parameters of instruction, online versus face to face offerings and other issues related to course offerings at Yavapai College will be presented. The SLC has conducted several surveys related to course offering here at YC. These concerns and issues will be addressed from the student perspective. We should like to engage with faculty about issues of instruction and course offerings here at Yavapai College.
