Description: Delta College needs your feedback! Laura Ochoa-Sanchez, Division Dean, Agriculture, Science and Mathematics, San Joaquin Delta College has invited agriculture to attend a meeting regarding the agriculture department on Thursday, July 12.
From, Laura Ochoa-Sanchez: Please join us for a convening to discuss the workforce needs of our local Agriculture Industry. San Joaquin Delta College recognizes the importance of agriculture as our region’s top industry. Our administration and our Board of Trustees are committed to maintaining and improving viable and productive Agriculture Programs. We are also committed to maintaining and improving the Manteca Farm.
While we are eager to improve our Agricultural Programs, we also want to do it right! We want to offer the kind of training and instruction that will meet the industry’s workforce demands. That’s why your feedback is so critical. On July 12, we will discuss our current programs, what changes are needed, and which new programs or emphases should be implemented. We will also review course outlines to ensure curriculum is in alignment with industry standards.
This meeting comes at a time when cuts have been made to the agriculture program. Click here to read a letter from Jennifer Terpstra, Agriculture Professor, which outlines the challenges the department is facing and provides additional detail.
