Coronavirus Resources Fresno City College faculty and staff will be attending a campus meeting today until 12:30 – phone lines may be be affected.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, State Center Community College Foundation has established a new Emergency Student Aid Fund.
As the world faces the COVID-19 pandemic, our thoughts surround the physical health of our students, faculty, staff and community.
As you may know, State Center Community College District, includes Clovis Community College, Fresno City College, Reedley College and Madera and Oakhurst Community College Centers has canceled all in-person classes for the remainder of the spring and summer semesters to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and protect the safety of our campus communities.
These decisions, though difficult, are paramount to ensuring the health and vitality of our students, faculty, staff and broader community. But even in the midst of these incredibly trying times, the District remains committed to lifting the community to greater heights. Our incredible faculty and staff are working hard to deliver their dynamic instruction and supportive services to our students remotely using digital interfaces and other distance learning platforms. We meet our students where they are, and we provide them with the necessary support to attain a college degree or certificate.
Many in our community have asked how they can assist in our efforts. A Student Emergency Fund has been created in response to student financial hardships incurred as a result of the COVID-19. A gift to the Student Emergency Fund helps meet immediate and essential expenses allowing students to focus on their academic coursework. Your gift of any amount will be matched up to $30,000 by State Center Community College Foundation.
I invite you to join with us to help our students continue to achieve their higher educational goals by making a gift today to the Student Emergency Fund.
As we work in new ways to advance our mission and provide our students with the education they deserve, I know our campus communities will continue to shine brightly as leaders. And I am certain that, in the days to come, we will once again experience the power of the generosity of our extraordinary community.
I wish you and your loved ones continued health and I look forward to sharing the benefits of your commitment to our students.
