men-of-color

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.

SCC Learning resource center

On Wednesday, October 26, SCC hosted its first visit from the Partnership Resource Team (PRT) through the Institutional Effectiveness Partnership Initiative (IEPI). This group of colleagues will be working with Sac City on enrollment management strategies, focusing particularly on course scheduling and pathways.

The PRT website has the meeting schedule, PRT bios, and the documentation that the college has provided the team on current practices.

The PRT will be back on campus Dec. 13 to provide the college a range of ideas and options to consider in relation to those scheduling and pathway issues. Sac City will then decide which option/s may be best for the college and apply for a grant from the California Community College Chancellor’s Office to help put the ideas into motion.

centennial-football-game

The Sac City Panthers beat Sierra College 21-20 in overtime Saturday to claim victory in the Centennial Football Game, held at the end of a very productive day in celebration of the 100th anniversary of Sacramento City College.

After the teams finished regulation tied 14-14, Tyree Hanson scored on a 4-yard run, and Elijah Siemering kicked the extra point for a 21-14 lead. The extra point proved to be the game winner, as Sierra also scored a touchdown during their overtime possession, but failed on the extra point attempt.

Hanson finished with 213 yards rushing on 39 attempts during the driving rain storm.

Congratulations Panthers, who improved to 4-2 on the season and 1-0 in conference play.
