A team of faculty, classified staff and administrators worked with a group of community college peers Dec. 7 and 8 to develop an Institutional Effectiveness Plan that will help steer guided pathways for students for the foreseeable future. It’s all part of the Institutional Effectiveness Partnership Initiative, or IEPI, a statewide grant for community colleges through the state chancellor’s office.
About six weeks ago, a team of professional peers came to Sac City and spent a day listening to a variety of people about the needs and desires to incorporate better student pathways. The outside team then developed a series of options from other institutions that have been successful in this area for Sac City to discuss and possibly try to emulate.
From that menu of options, Sac City will develop its Institutional Effectiveness Plan and apply for a $200,000 implementation grant from the state.

On the evening before Thanksgiving, the Sacramento City College Choir had the honor of singing at the Old Sacramento Tree Lighting Event.

More than 2,000 people attended the annual event, including Mayor-elect Darrell Steinberg and Councilwoman Angelique Ashby. Sixty SCC students and faculty were present and handed out carol books and encouraged the audience to join in singing carols.

Camille Cobbs, Old Sacramento events and merchants coordinator, was thrilled to have the choir help set the festive mood.

“You all were definitely the stars of the show and we hope to host you again in the future!” she told the choir.

Students who are awarded financial aid may receive a notification in their eServices account regarding courses that are ineligible for financial aid.

This means that one or more courses have been flagged because they are not part of the your major, general education, transfer or certificate program. Only courses that are part of the your major, general education, transfer or certificate program can receive financial aid.

The BOG Fee Waiver is not affected. If a student has been awarded a BOG Fee Waiver, it will cover the enrollment fees for all courses, even those not required for the student’s major.

Log in to eServices and review the “View Course Eligibility” screen to check for ineligible courses you have enrolled in. If anything is marked as ineligible, follow the decision tree to determine your next steps.

The SCC Dental Hygiene program was recently included among the best Dental Hygiene programs and colleges, according to the Community for Accredited Online Schools.

SCC’s program ranked number 41 out of 335 two-year college programs with a score of 96.83 out of 100. Included in the rankings are student-teacher ratio (28:1),  and the inclusion of placement services (yes) and counseling services (yes).

Congratulations to this very important, and highly-ranked program on campus.

Two SCC students, Victor Molina and Maslin Walker, attended the 5th Annual Men of Color Student Leadership Institute – Man Up: Educating Minority Males for Leadership! in St. Paul, Minneapolis from October 27th – 30th.

The Men of Color conference is part of the Minority Male Initiative (MMI) that is a direct response to the need of having more minority males succeed in reaching their educational and personal goals and to enter the workforce as successful employees. The conference focused on identifying, engaging and promoting leadership development of males in traditionally underrepresented communities.

Victor, who represented Puente, and Malin, who represented Umoja, were screened and selected from an application pool of student leaders from across the nation to attend this highly prestigious Institute based on their identified potential to succeed. Presenters and workshop facilitators at the Institute were leaders in their prospective fields, who provided the participants with the essential knowledge, skills, tools and support needed to enable them to achieve their educational and personal goals, as well as enhance their sense of responsibility for their communities. The institute’s agenda provided an opportunity for participants to connect with community college CEOs, other administrators, and businessmen from an array of industries. In addition, participants interacted with other community college students from across the country. Participants were challenged to think about their path to being successful; thus, requiring them to fully immerse themselves in the institute program.
Congratulations to these two SCC students! Pictured with them is Adjunct Counselor Chris Torres.
