Sacramento City College joins with many institutions of higher education across the nation this week in celebration of National Hispanic Serving Institution Week.
President Barack Obama made the declaration that the week of Sept. 19 through 23 will serve as a reminder that many college and universities enroll at least 25% of their students from Hispanic/Latino populations.
That includes Sac City, where our student body is about 30% Hispanic/Latino.
In addition, SCC is in the first of a 5-year, $2.65 million HSI Grant from the federal government called “SAGE” or Students in a Global Economy. And the college is gearing up to apply for more grant money specifically for Hispanic/Latino STEM majors.
