Welcome, new members! Join us for a bagel brunch
Cynthia Eaton


new member bagel brunches
New members and their assigned FA mentors are strongly encouraged to attend the bagel brunch on their campus: Ammerman 10/11, Grant 10/18 and Eastern 10/25.

The national trend is for colleges and universities to not replace full-time faculty when they retire or leave to take on another position. SCCC has experienced some of that as well, but the trend seems to be reversing. This is a great sign for the well being of our entire institution.

Therefore it brings me great pleasure to welcome the following individuals who were hired into their current positions this calendar year.

We look forward to working with them as they move through the promotion ranks and rely on the FA’s workshops and programs to fund their ongoing professional development.
