Dear CCA Community,

We are writing to announce three exciting milestones in our campus planning work that create a more integrated environment for faculty and staff, enhance the accessibility of our San Francisco campus, and better inform our community about transportation services and news:

  • On January 8 we will pilot a new kind of faculty workspace and open new staff offices in the recently renovated 80 Carolina building;
  • On the same day a new Mission Bay shuttle service by Mission Bay TMA will launch from BART and Panoramic Residences to the San Francisco campus;
  • And a new transportation section of the Portal launched today, to help our students, faculty, and staff, navigate the many public and private transportation options available for commuting to school and work.

These initiatives - the result of the hard work of faculty and staff over this past year - are just some of the many milestones yet to come in our creation of a new and expanded campus in San Francisco which, by academic year 2021-22, will feature a new sustainable building designed by Studio Gang, new housing for nearly 1,000 students within a two-block radius of our campus, facilities for all of our programs, and more.

80 Carolina Reopening

Expanded and newly renovated staff offices and a new prototype for faculty workspace in CCA's 80 Carolina building will open January 8.

New staff offices located on the second floor:

  • Utilize the space in a thoughtful way to bring together collaborating departments and create meaningful interactions;
    Provide flexible spaces that offer a balance between collaborative work and individual focus and include both open and private offices, meeting and huddle rooms, and casual third spaces where staff can meet, work, socialize and reenergize;
    Increase the number of much needed meeting spaces, ranging from informal huddle rooms, to large conference rooms, break out spaces, small phone booths, and more; and
    Feature ergonomic, sit-to-stand height adjustable desks, modern, and design-centered furniture, open areas and skylights that bring natural light throughout floor.

The design of the space was informed by the feedback gathered last year, from our pilot of new staff workspaces with Enrollment Management’s offices.

The following staff offices will now be located on the second floor of 80 Carolina: Advancement, BSO, Payroll, Marketing and Communications, select Academic Affairs staff, select Human Resources staff, AVP of Operations, Institutional Research, Art Practical, VP of Enrollment Management, the Chief Financial Officer, and President Stephen Beal’s San Francisco office (he will continue to retain his office on the Oakland campus as well).

The following staff offices will remain on the ground floor of the building: Student Affairs, Financial Aid, Student Records, Student Accounts, and Technology Services. In addition, Career Development will also move into the first floor suite shared with Financial Aid, Student Records and Student Accounts.

A new kind of faculty workspace, located on the ground floor, provides an area for faculty to utilize in-between classes/engagements. We will be actively seeking feedback from faculty to better understand how this model can best support their needs, and will use the information we receive to help inform the design of additional faculty spaces on our new, expanded campus. The space includes:

Different areas and furniture types to fit the various needs of faculty - whether that be working on individual projects, arranging one-on-one or group meetings, or socializing and collaborating with peers;

Storage for personal items in-between classes;

  • A private bathroom and kitchenette;
  • Tools and technology to support work and collaboration, including a dedicated printer, two workstations, Wi-Fi, built-in audio/visual capability, and classroom materials storage; and
  • Access to the building’s terrace/outdoor space.
  • All faculty will have access to the space via an identification card issued by Public Safety.
