Students, faculty, and staff at the first annual Honors Equity Retreat

The first annual Honors Equity Retreat was held Friday, March 24 at the Sierra 2 Community Center.

VP Michael Poindexter opened the event by saying, “Equity needs to be part of the SCC culture.” With that in mind, the Equity Retreat developed strategies for the Honors Program to help disproportionately impacted students achieve college success. “We want our campus community to know the Honors Program is here to serve all students regardless of GPA,” said program coordinator, Paul Frank. The retreat was facilitated by Professor Mark Dennis and was attended by students, faculty, and staff.
