Santa Monica College is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion that enriches the District’s mission and supports students in achieving their educational goals.
The committee was established in spring 2002—as required by state law—to oversee the implementation of Measure U, the $160 million bond passed by an overwhelming 70 percent of Santa Monica-Malibu voters. The committee’s responsibility was expanded to include oversight of Measure S, the $135 million bond measure passed in November 2004; Measure AA, the $295 million bond measure passed in November 2008; and Measure V, the $345 million bond measure passed in November 2016. The bond measures are funding a wide range of projects, including replacement buildings, seismic retrofitting, safety and technology upgrades, and more.
The SMC Board of Trustees will review all applications and make the final appointments. For more information on the application process, please contact Lisa Rose, at ROSE_LISA@smc.edu or 310-434-4402. Detailed information on the committee may also be found at www.smc.edu/CBOC.
