open forum posterEarlier this year, the Board of Trustees asked the District to take a closer look at best practices in public safety with a goal of maintaining and enhancing safety on its campuses. Soon after, in March, the District formed a Public Safety Services Study Committee to conduct research and make recommendations. One of the most important things this Committee is doing is holding Campus Safety Open Forums so that everyone on our campus has the opportunity to offer opinions and concerns about this vital area.

The Open Forums, being conducted by national experts Margolis Healy, are a chance for you to ensure your voice is heard. While you’re welcome to attend any of the forums, being held Sept. 13 to Sept. 15, forums will be held right here at Skyline College on Thursday, Sept. 15, in Building 6, Rooms 6-202, 6-204 & 6-206, at the following times:

  • 8:30am – Staff Forum
  • 10:30am – Faculty Forum
  • 12:30pm – All Employees: Faculty, Staff & Administrators
  • 3:30pm – Student Forum
  • 5:30pm – Everyone: All Employees, Students & Community

Please make arrangements with your supervisor to attend as it is vital that the entire campus community participate.

If you are unable to attend a forum on September 15th or would prefer to provide feedback in nonpublic venue, please complete a confidential survey which can be found at

To learn more about this effort and for schedule updates, please visit the study website. These conversations also will continue through the use of #SMCCCD #Forums16.

Thank you in advance for your active participation.
