From Provost Dr. Greg Schulz
Welcome to the School of Continuing Education (SCE) 2013 Winter Term. The beginning of a new year is an opportune time to reflect on the prior year: what have we learned from past experiences? How can we build upon the successes achieved? Upon reflection we are then positioned to journey toward the completion of our goals or perhaps take a new direction. What are you looking to do in 2013?
At SCE, we look forward to assisting you along your educational journey and supporting you through your career, academic or personal achievement plan. Our dedicated faculty and staff serve the community through a comprehensive schedule of classes ranging from academic skills to career technical education, language development and life skills, including one of the strongest community education programs for children and adults in all of California! This term, we are pleased to feature several new classes including Electricity Fundamentals, Effective PowerPoint Presentations, Sign Language, Zumba Gold Fitness, Tai Chi for Healthy Living and Guitar Workshop for Adults.
If you are among the 40,000 students whom we are privileged to serve annually, thank you for choosing SCE to pursue and achieve your educational goals. If you are joining us for the first time, welcome! Whatever your goal, we look forward to helping you achieve success. Let’s have a great winter term.
As the 2012 SCE Fall Term winds down, we want to say “thank you” for choosing SCE on your educational journey. We wish you a wonderful holiday season and a joyous new year.
