“The safety of our students, faculty and staff are of utmost importance to SRJC,” said Dr. Frank Chong, Superintendent/President. “Beyond that, we have already developed plans for helping those who need support to begin recovering from these tragic events, and those plans will continue to evolve.”
The college’s Emergency Operations Center is continually evaluating the situation and refining support systems for SRJC students and employees.
