I’ve worked at MiraCosta College on the Oceanside campus for 8 years in the Admissions and Records office as an Evaluator and I would love to serve the Classified community by being a part of the Classification Review Committee! It is truly an honor to be nominated and I would love the opportunity to be a part of this committee. Having worked at other institutions in the state, I believe this gives me the awareness and insight that only comes with experience, and I thank you for your consideration!

Noncredit Student and Faculty Support Assistant

Community Learning Center

Hi! My name is Brian Nielsen, and I have been a MiraCosta employee for over 13 years!  I’ve been on the Classified Senate, been a member of the Classification Review Committee, the Classified Salary Committee, the Classified Travel Committee, the Presidential Hiring Committee, as well as other hiring committees, and probably a few other committees that I can’t remember!  I am currently serving on the Career Incentive Committee and a hiring committee.  I would be honored to be selected to participate on the CRC once again, and appreciate this opportunity to serve my fellow MiraCostans!  When I’m not working I like to ride my motorcycle and support veteran causes in the community.

I’m honored to be nominated to run for CRC, and hope my fellow classified colleagues agree that I would be a valuable addition to the CRC. I have worked at MiraCosta for 13 years in the Office of Instruction and served as the classified tri-chair representative on the last accreditation. My experience as a tri-chair opened my eyes to how classified personnel take on additional work with no compensation and still produce quality work. Currently I am a member of the Civic Center Ad Hoc Committee, Campus Advisory Committee, and Tech Review. During discussions in the Civic Center meetings, I have seen how changes in structure and policy are affecting the jobs of classified. I hope, as a member of CRC, I can review the submittal of new positions, reclassification of existing positions, etc. and provide an unbiased, informed and fair recommendation. I take my role on committees seriously, and would not agree to be on a committee if I didn’t think I could fully participate.  Thank you for taking the time to read my statement.
