A message from Dr. Anthony E. Beebe, Superintendent/President, Santa Barbara City College –
Santa Barbara City College has created a unique academic culture, which has been recognized with numerous accolades and awards. This includes the 2013 Aspen Award for Community College Excellence in, among other things, increased levels of access and success for marginalized and low-income students.
I highlight to you the profound commitment the College has to academic excellence, diversity, equity, and inclusion among our faculty, staff, and students. As a community, we believe that diversity comes in many forms. We understand that individuals are multidimensional, shaped by the intersections of a variety of life experiences and factors. We recognize and challenge the inequities that stem from the complex world in which we live and embrace the many facets of people that make up our wonderful College.
Consequently, we seek College employees who will take responsibility for equitable outcomes and successful pathways for our students. We seek new staff and faculty to join our community and embrace our commitments.
