No it's not raining today, but it is Flag Day. Maybe this photo will seed for our monsoons in July.

Now, Elsie is on today from 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm. If you're already done with last week's work, previewing for the coming week is a really good idea. Elsie can assist where ever you are at with your school work.

Week 3 coming up. Keep ahead or catch-up now so the remainder of the semester runs smooth. You're in charge.

Workshops and Study Skills - Yavapai College

I'm studying a book entitled,
Atomic Habits: An Easy & Proven Way to Build Good Habits & Break Bad Ones.
Here's a quote I think appropriate for the day:

"In times of uncertainty, your habits can ground you.

When you feel overwhelmed, practice 1 minute of mindfulness.

When you feel restless, do a 1-minute workout.

When the world seems uncontrollable, focus on what you can control." James Clear

(Watch for the workshop I'm developing this summer to offer through the LC Student Success Workshops: https://www.yc.edu/v6/learning-center/study-skills-workshops.html)

It's Thursday. For many at the college today is the last day of the work week. Remember, we have weekend tutoring, so there's more to see Friday through Sunday.

Today, Manu is back for awesome coverage in Biology, All Math, and All Writing.

Keep up the good work folks. Consistently practicing makes all the difference. Many short study periods produce more understanding than a long study period.

Take good care of yourselves and each other.

Dr. Rhine update 6/3/2020

HI Folks,
I'm providing Dr. Rhine's update in case you missed it in your email.

Wednesday, June 3, 2020

A video update from Yavapai College President, Dr. Lisa Rhine, regarding the COVID-19 pandemic.

Please click the link below to watch the video.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FPtaVZSUvXA

Text Version:

Good afternoon, I’m Lisa Rhine, President of Yavapai College

It’s Wednesday, June 3, 2020.

As you all know, the last two weeks has been one of the more trying times our nation has ever seen.

In response, I sent out a message to our employees and students earlier this week, and I want to reiterate some of that today.

I not only condemn the egregious injustice of another African American death, but also must acknowledge the fear and righteous anger of the African-American community. In the U.S., we have failed to uphold the unspoken societal contract to protect and treat each other fairly and justly. But, let me say, the current case is not the first.

As your leader, I feel silence is complicity and we have to step up and protect each other. In much the same manner, when we wear our masks in public, we are protecting each other.

Everyone is facing this battle against the Coronavirus together. We must also make a stand that we face racism together. For when our neighbor or colleague suffers a racist act, all of us are affected.But know that a racist act is compounded for African-Americans who battle racism on a daily basis, in ways that many can’t understand. I know for many of you, like me, this unrest and anxiety is weighing on our minds and hearts.

As part of our commitment to find solutions to address these issues, Yavapai College will take immediate action to re-examine our own practices and ensure we continue to implement policies, trainings, and accountabilities to protect our students, staff and faculty of color.

We may not change the country by our actions, but we can certainly and positively impact our college and our community.

In our roles as educators, researchers, professionals and community leaders, we must prepare those in our classrooms to participate vigorously in civic discourse and democracy.

For a robust civil discourse requires open, honest dialog:The bottom line is the killings and mistreatment of citizens must stop. The system as it stands must change, from the inside out.

I thank you, in advance, for joining with me in this effort

I also have some college updates for you today.

The Emergency Operations Committee is evaluating plans from every department to determine a phased-in re-entry plan. We are developing a comprehensive plan for re-entry. Because it is extensive and lots of action is involved, we are going to communicate this in the most digestible way possible, in phases.

The leadership team will be meeting with direct reports next Wednesday to begin this process and all employees will receive updates as we move forward.

Summer classes have begun. I am happy to announce a record enrollment for the college this summer, which proves that there are many, many men and women in our communities who are looking for our help to reach their educational and career goals.

Fall registration is open, and our academic areas are working with the aforementioned Emergency Operations Committee to establish safe returns to the classroom for those programs which require hands-on learning.

That’s all I have for today, I will provide another video next Wednesday.

Stay safe and stay healthy
