Eight months into the job as a member of South Texas College’s Board of Trustees, Victoria Cantu says advocating for the college on a national level remains her top priority for 2019.
“It’s important that we continue to attract students from all over because STC is not only a community college, but an institution that can provide excellence in higher education to a dynamic student body population,” Cantu said. “I will continue to work to reduce barriers that prevent students from graduating on time and working with industry leaders to establish career pathways for highly skilled employment opportunities for our students.”
Trustee Victoria Cantu’s top priorities for 2019:
- Continue to advocate for South Texas College locally, statewide and nationally.
- Support the development and maintenance of innovative, high quality programs that meet student, employer and community needs and maintain the excellent reputation of the college. Ensure opportunities for all types of students, including transfer, workforce, basic skills, and lifelong learners.
- Encourage the college to adopt common business practices and services that facilitate student access and success.
