West Sac Veterans

The West Sacramento Center has partnered with YoloArts and the Yolo County Veterans Service Office to host a three-city traveling art exhibit celebrating veterans.

“Positive Reflections: From Combat to Community” showcases works inspired and created by veterans.

The goal of the exhibition is to contribute to the public understanding of veterans’ experiences and honor them as they reintegrate from combat to civilian life.

On opening day at the West Sacramento Center, there was a Veterans Resource Fair from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., accompanied by blues music by Joe Lev and Friends. An artists reception was held from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., and featured a reading of “Positive Reflections,” a commissioned poem by Davis Poet Laureate Andy Jones.

The project is funded by a Veterans in the Arts grant award to YoloArts from the California Arts Council.

Please check out some photos from the event on our SCC slide show page.

The U.S. Department of Education has awarded Sacramento City College $525,000 in federal funding for each of the next five years as part of the Department’s Developing Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI) Program.

“This HSI grant is very significant for Sacramento City College as we continue to expand and enhance our services to students,” said SCC President Kathryn Jeffery. “And, the global studies component of our proposal will prepare students for engagement locally, nationally and internationally.”

Funding from this federal grant will allow Sacramento City College to fully support its comprehensive approach to academic success for first-year Hispanic students. The goals of this program are to improve student course success rates, retention rates, and completion rates for first-year Hispanic students. Sacramento City College plans to achieves these goals by creating a comprehensive first-year learning community program with culturally responsive curriculum development, expanding learning opportunities outside of the classroom, purchasing teaching materials and developing workshops, and implementing mentorship and internship programs. This multifaceted initiative will help ensure that all students have the support and opportunities they need to achieve academic success at Sacramento City College.

“This grant recognizes Sacramento City College’s commitment to first-year students of diverse backgrounds and needs,” said Congresswoman Doris Matsui, who announced the award on Sept. 30. “Through this recognition and funding as part of the Developing Hispanic Serving Institution Program, Sacramento City College will continue to invest in first-year students’ success, and will improve educational outcomes and opportunities for entering Hispanic students.”

Sacramento City College enrolls a diverse student body in an urban campus environment.  The college has a student body of approximately 24,000 students, of which nearly 30 percent are Hispanic/Latino.
