effort at SBCC but he has assumed a significant role statewide in contributing to
and shaping the manner in which technology is used to advance and further the mission
of the community colleges. We are fortunate to benefit from Paul's vision, leadership,
commitment, and understanding of the impact that technology can have in strengthening
and supporting the teaching/learning process.”
