About the division

The District's Instructional Services Division has grown in terms of its responsibilities and range of programs and services. We have embarked on a mission-driven focus to forge a stronger partnership with the colleges and Continuing Education to support areas of need, growth and development through five program offices more fully integrated to serve you and our students:

This site will orient you to the new programs, the staff responsible for their implementation and contact information for accessing our services and support opportunities.

In connecting the District's colleges to change and innovation, we seek to enrich the college experience of our students through focused attention to instructional excellence, best practices and new tools of instruction.
We offer resources that can help us all make a difference in what, how, and who we teach as the student population and demographics change. We are eager to work with you to implement programs and ideas that change people's lives for the better. Working in partnership, we can make the difference in the quality and diversity of educational opportunities for the residents of San Diego.
