129: Pandemic Consequences for Students - with Luis P. Sanchez, President Oxnard College

This is The EdUp Experience President Series Episode #42 - In this episode of The EdUp Experience, we talk with Luis P. Sanchez, President at Oxnard College.  Luis details for us how hard students at Oxnard have been hit during the pandemic, financially and otherwise - access to basic services like WiFi and food (hunger) are REAL.   Luis also talks to us about how the first part of 2022 is already baked-in, and with a reputation that isn't as strong as it should be (but growing), Oxnard's move to online comes with the understanding that many programs HAVE to be hands-on.  There are still many faculty and students that do not enjoy online learning.  Today's students and students in the future education in equity and there is an experience to be gained in civic engagement that is key to their future. 

Luis Pablo Sanchez has been the president of Oxnard College since April of 2019. Before that, he was the president of Moorpark College from February of 2015 until April of 2019. Prior to that, he was the Vice President of Academic Affairs for Allan Hancock College in Santa Maria, California from 2011 to 2015.
