Speaker: Anne Viricel, DPA. Trustee, San Bernardino County Community College Board of Trustees                                                                                                                                                  Topic: Crossing the Two-Year Divide: How the Memorandum of Understanding Between the University of Redlands and Crafton Hills College Will Ensure More Students Obtain a Bachelor’s Degree

The recent memorandum of understanding between the University of Redlands and Crafton Hills College was designed to create a guided pathway for community college students to effectively engage with four-year universities. Many of these students are the first in their families to obtain an Associate’s degree; those with higher academic aspirations now will have the administrative means to now move on. How many students will this affect? How will it help meet enrollment goals? How will it benefit the local economy?

Anne Viricel, DPA, an elected member of the San Bernardino Community College Board of Trustees, will discuss these questions and the educational road map this historic document represents for our community and region. Dr. Viricel is the Executive Director of the San Bernardino Symphony and teaches evening classes in quantitative operations and strategic coursework in the U of R School of Business. Dr. Viricel is also an author and member of the Bonnes Meres Auxiliary of the Children’s Fund, the Assistance League of San Bernardino, and the San Bernardino Symphony Guild. She joined our AAUW Redlands Branch in 2002 and is a popular speaker at our annual STEM conference.                                                                                                                                                                                                                          ~ Elaine Brubacher
