HSI Student Panel

SCC Reps Attend Summit on Hispanic Serving Institutions

More than 20 representatives from SCC attended the HSI (Hispanic Serving Institutions) Summit at UC Davis on Feb. 17 and 18.

SCC faculty, staff and administrators convened with educational leaders from throughout the state to share and refine ideas about advocating for student success at HSI designated colleges.

Activities included hearing from various speakers, as well as listening to panel discussions and attending workshops.

Additionally, SCC students and alums starred in one of the discussion panels, co-moderated by SCC Economics Professor Sandra Camarena. The panelists were Angelica Garcia, Ermelinda Garfia, Jose Limon, Maria Medina, Veronica Orozco (CSUS) and Antonio Rios.

SCC has been recognized as an HSI by the US Department of Agriculture and is deemed eligible to apply for US Department of Education HSI grants. To be eligible for HSI designation, an institution must have an enrollment of undergraduate students that is at least 25 percent Hispanic. As of the Fall 2014 fourth week census date, SCC had 28 percent Hispanic students.

Pedestrian Bridge Construction Continues through Spring Semester

Construction of a pedestrian bridge linking the Light Rail station at Sacramento City College and the Curtis Park II subdivision will continue through the spring semester.

The construction requires the closure of the road behind the SCC parking structure and around the back of the campus. Please plan your travels accordingly to bypass the closed road into or out of the campus.

The pedestrian bridge is a City of Sacramento project. It has been in the planning stages for many years, and will enhance access to SCC’s main campus and the Light Rail station.
