Time Wise speaking on stage

Tim hosted an interactive talk and breakout session in which participants were invited to examine institutional practices and procedures which often inadvertently perpetuate unequal opportunity and treatment.

Wise is among the most prominent anti-racist writers and educators in the United States. He is the author of seven books including his latest, Under the Affluence: Shaming the Poor, Praising the Rich and Sacrificing the Future of America and his highly acclaimed memoir, White Like Me: Reflections on Race from a Privileged Son.

Through Wise’s lively and informed talk, attendees discussed tools and developed strategies for shifting the institutional culture at SCC in the direction of greater parity.

Sacramento City College formally introduced itself Tuesday, Sept. 15, as a Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) during a lunchtime ceremony that included a ribbon cutting, free cake and a great concert.

SCC has been designated an HSI college by virtue of the fact that more than 25% of all students claim Hispanic/Latino background. In fact, Sac City is now more than 29% Hispanic/Latino, representing the single highest racial/ethnic group at the college.

As an HSI college, SCC can apply for federal grants, through the United States Department of Agriculture, to provide more services for students. SCC has applied for available grants and is awaiting word on whether the application has been accepted.

In addition, Tuesday was Mexican Independence Day.
