DARE Evolves

A message from Co-Chair Lorrie Ranck

DARE Colleagues,

First, a thank you for your commitment and engagement in DARE over the past year or, in many cases, years.

With the integration of Basic Skills, Student Equity and Student Success and Support Services, the foundation that DARE established has evolved and we are seeking faculty and classified representatives to serve on the BSI-SSSP-SE Advisory CommitteeIf you are interested in the opportunity to serve, please reach out to your appropriate Senate (Classified or Academic).

Again, as we bring the DARE Taskforce to a close and take a look back, the work of faculty and staff shines through so clearly and it is evident that our students have been central to our efforts and will continue to benefit from such collaborative work.

Lorrie Ranck,
DARE Co-Chair and Associate Vice President, Instruction

DARE Task Force Mission Statement

Developmental Education at De Anza College equitably allows
students of every background to take ownership of their education and to succeed in their educational goals by providing the necessary integrated resources, services, and learning environment.

DARE Taskforce Charge

The Taskforce will develop a campus-wide plan to streamline and structure the flow of students from the point of entry, through student support and academic courses, to their final objectives.

Future objectives will be identified by the task force itself, in alignment with Basic Skills Initiative (BSI) grant objectives.
