On June 6, representatives from the San Diego & Imperial Counties Community Colleges Association (SDICCCA) met with University of California President Janet Napolitano and UC San Diego Chancellor Pradeep Khosla at the County Office of Education in Linda Vista. President Napolitano emphasized the UC’s commitment to partnership with California’s 113 community colleges. She said that 85 percent of the UC’s current students are California residents and that 5,000 additional California residents would be enrolled this year. Discussion topics focused on 21 new transfer pathways being established by the UC, affordability issues, and other ways to create greater access for local community college transfers. SDICCCA representatives thanked both President Napolitano and Chancellor Khosla for their efforts and called the local relationship with UC San Diego a model of cooperation.
