Extended Opportunity Programs and Services (EOPS), Ceremony of Recognition Speech by Henry Fan.


Elizabeth Barkley Headshot"Because I assumed I understood what was required to make my courses accessible, I was shocked to have my classes evaluated and find out how wrong I was. It has taken a ton of effort to address all the issues, but now that I understand accessibility much better, I can easily maintain it. It feels fabulous - not only to be finished, but to know that I have removed my unintended barriers to student learning."

~ Elizabeth Barkley Ph.D. Professor Music History

Foothill Tree logo"My Fiance attended Foothill for her AA and recommended I do the same because the online program is pretty excellent."

~ Foothill College Student


Hilary Gomes"Teaching online has been a wonderful experience! The online tools have allowed me to make more human connections. I use video and voice tools to connect, interact and share creativity with my art students."

~ Hilary Gomes, Studio Arts Professor
