SCC’s Umoja- SBA program held an orientation for about 50 new students who were ready to connect with counselors, faculty and college staff as they began moving toward reaching their academic goals.

Interim President Michael Poindexter welcomed the students with some encouraging words. The students also honored counselor Gerri Scott for her hard work and continued effort to inspire students to reach their goals while teaching them about their African American heritage.

Umoja is a statewide grassroots community organization of faculty and administrators within the California Community College system who are focused on African American student achievement.


With the beginning of the Fall 2016 semester, SCC is now officially 100 years old.


The first students attended Sacramento Junior College (as it was then known) in the fall of 1916. Thanks to the forward thinking of Belle Cooledge and Jeremiah Lillard, the college has grown from a small institution with 46 students to a bustling college with three campuses and close to 23,000 students every semester.
