Watch this video: SMC Coronavirus Update

Dear SMC Colleagues:

Please take a moment to watch this video for my first—and comprehensive—update on how Santa Monica College is responding to COVID-19, the 2019 novel coronavirus. You can view the video below or view it on YouTube.

Remember to check out this consolidated webpage for resources, FAQ, past messages, and much more: smc.edu/coronavirus.

This is a very challenging time. But I have no doubt that, together, we will rise to the occasion and continue to deliver on the college’s mission of providing an equitable, accessible, and high-quality education and an environment where student success is the highest priority. Hang in there, stay safe and healthy, and wash your hands!

With deep appreciation for all you do,

Kathryn E. Jeffery, Ph.D.
Superintendent/President
