City College Reviews President Serban

The Santa Barbara City College Board of Trustees held their annual review of President Andreea Serban during a closed session meeting last week. While the public commenters beforehand—among them representatives of the Continuing Education Instructors Association, the Association of Continuing Education Students, and a few teachers involved with the school’s Center for Sustainability—were largely discouraged by Serban’s perceived lack of communication and outreach to staff, the board, by all accounts, gave her a wholeheartedly supportive review. Though unable to comment specifically on the review due to personnel confidentiality laws, Board President Joe Dobbs opined this week that, “We think Andreea has been doing a really great job.”
