Sacramento State teamed with Univision 19, the California State University system and the Mexican Consulate of Sacramento to help students and their families from the Spanish-speaking community realize their college dreams by sponsoring the third annual Feria de Educación on Saturday, Sept. 26, in Serna Plaza and the University Union. The event is planned each year by the College of Continuing Education.
Downtown Sacramento was a little louder today, as the Chicano Latino Youth Leadership Project (CLYLP) held a press conference on the north steps of the Capitol. Their chants of “si, se puede” (yes we can!) echoed for blocks, the collective effort of 120 voices roaring throughout the city.
Sacramento State’s College of Continuing Education (CCE) joined other universities in the U.S. to advance Proyecta 100K, a program that builds English skills for students and professors from Mexico as part of a long-term educational and cultural exchange between the two countries. And while CCE’s Proyecta program was in its first year, it received national recognition.
In February 2015, the Sacramento Alliance for Women in Media hosted a panel discussion on trends in continuing education. This not-for-profit organization is the leading resource for media and communication professionals in the Sacramento area, and is dedicated to continuing education for its members.
Naturally, CCE was delighted to contribute to this event. Our Associate Dean Jenni Murphy was part of the expert panel. She spoke about the importance of reaching out to students, and the future of higher education in Sacramento.
In January 2012, we celebrated our 60th anniversary with a week of special events in and around Napa Hall. The events provided an opportunity to reconnect with partners and constituents in an ongoing effort to strengthen relationships and connections to Sacramento State.
