REPORT TO THE COMMUNITY 2022-2023 Transformation through Education

Message from the President

On behalf of Fresno City College, it is my honor and privilege to present the college’s 2022- 2023 Community Report, which highlights our many accomplishments and achievements during the academic year. As California’s first community college, Fresno City College has provided 113 years of qual- ity education to the Central Valley. Our expert faculty and classified professionals have a commitment to providing services and opportunities for all our students. With more than 250 majors and certificates, our courses and programs are as diverse as the nearly 23,000 students we serve each semester. Our commitment to providing workforce training and transfer degrees has enabled many of our students to begin careers in nursing, law enforcement, automotive technology and others to attend the four-year college or university of their choice. Since 2020, the college has broken ground on five construction projects totaling more than $255 million. With these new facilities, the face of the college has made historic progress in providing more access to higher education for students. The long-awaited West Fresno

Center, the much-needed Parking Structure, and the new First Responders Campus are all open and serving students. Still under construction are the new Science Building and new Child Develop- ment Center. You can find more details in this report. As the college president, I am committed to providing my support to our students, employees and the community for years to come. We are excited about what the future holds for the college and the region. Go Rams!

Lee Herrick – California Poet Laureate

On a warm November afternoon, Governor Gavin Newsom and First Partner Jennifer Siebel Newsom made a special classroom visit to let English instructor Lee Herrick know that he would be the next California Poet Laureate. He is the 10th California Poet Laureate and is the first Asian American to serve in the role. Over the course of a two-year term, the Poet Laureate provides public readings in urban and rural locations across California, educates civic and state leaders about the value of poetry and creative expression and undertakes a significant cultural project, with one of the goals being to bring poetry to students who might otherwise have little opportunity to access it. In addition to organizing readings all over the state, Herrick hopes to build bridges between poetry and social justice. “I am deeply honored, humbled, and excited to be named California Poet Laureate,” he said. He plans to use his platform called Our California to bring together poetry with a social justice or civic engagement organization in each city that he visits during his term as the state’s Poet Laureate. “As a teacher, poet, and father, Lee writes movingly about his identity as a Californian and encourages others to reflect on what the state means to them,” said Governor Newsom. “Lee’s dedication to highlighting the diverse experiences of Californians, and making them so accessible through his poetry, makes him a perfect candidate for Poet Laureate. I look forward to his work to inspire communities and individuals across the state through the power of the written word.” Herrick has been teaching at FCC for 27 years and is the author of three books of poems: Scar and Flower, a finalist for the 2020 Northern California Book Award; Gardening Secrets of the Dead; and This Many Miles from Desire. In February, the college proudly celebrated his appointment with a special evening of poetry readings that included former and current students, colleagues, community members and Herrick himself. Herrick’s poetry canon explores the diversity and vitality of the California experience and the exhilarating success of the American experiment. Born in Daejeon, South Korea and adopted as an infant, he grew up in Modesto immersed in literature, art and various cultural influences. He served as Fresno’s poet laureate from 2015 to 2017. He is also a co-founder of LitHop, a literary festival in the city. He earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees from California State University, Stanislaus. His master’s thesis was entitled: “Aristotelian Theory in Presidential Rhetoric.” He compared writings by the Greek philosopher Aristotle with President John F. Kennedy’s inaugural address plus speeches in times of crisis.


Spotlight on Staff


Janice Wong – Classified Professional

“Hey, You!” If you hear that greeting, then it must be Janice Wong. You’ll find Janice to be easygoing, and a calming force in her job as a Senior Program Specialist in the Student Activities Office. She also has a fierce commitment to students that has never wavered in her more than 23 years at Fresno City College. Janice is part of the team that works to engage students and enrich their college-going experience at FCC. She helps plan a myriad of events both big and small, provides guidance to all the student clubs and their advisors, works with student government, and hires the 25 to 30 student aides who work in the office each year. Through the years she has seen many students develop strong leadership skills, grow academically and in their personal development. Janice is a graduate of UC Davis and was active in college organizing many of the same kinds of events and projects. She understands how engaging in extra-curricular activities goes hand in hand with academics to round out the student experience. “I think that’s what keeps me really energetic about what we do here. Each year is different because of the different students we meet. It’s how we impact the students who come in here. Some start off being quiet and very shy, but then they start to blossom and grow throughout that time,” she said. Janice remains friends with many of the students who have benefitted from her guidance and now have successful careers of their own. “It’s always great to see that something we’ve done here in Student Activities, whether it’s just the services we provide, or they’ve worked here in our department, or they’ve been part of clubs and student government, they move up to other bigger and better things. We’re proud to say that they all started here in Student Activities,” she adds. Janice’s work has not gone unnoticed. In 2011, she was recognized by the State Center Community College District as the Classified Professional of the Year, but she shares accolades with her Student Activities team. “I think overall what’s important to us is knowing that if the students are happy and that they are satisfied, they have gotten what they need. I’m a team player and whatever is best for the department and the students is what’s important. Seeing that the students and others have enjoyed the event, that’s the appreciation I welcome.”

Angela Grantham

Angela Grantham has come a long way from the days of facing struggles as a child and making amends for bad choices as an adult. The single mother of two daughters has created a new life that includes graduating in Spring 2023 with a degree in HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning). Her accomplishments earned her the Dean’s Medallion Award from the Applied Technology Division. Her story so impressed Fresno City College President Dr. Robert Pimentel, that he awarded her the Tony Cantú President’s Medallion, the highest honor a student can earn. The journey to this point was a challenge for Angela. She was an adopted child who later became part of the foster system and then an unwed mother. Angela initially came to Fresno City College 15 years ago as a Social Work major, but with a 3-year-old daughter, she couldn’t give college her full attention. What followed was not the life she had hoped for her daughter and herself.

After dropping out of classes, life got worse for Angela. She went into survival mode after losing her job and housing. It wasn’t until getting arrested in 2019 and signing a plea agreement to get out of jail and back to her daughters, that Angela realized that returning to her old life was no longer possible. She found support in the Rising Scholars program for formerly incarcerated students. First, she earned a certificate in HVAC and then completed her Associate in Science degree. Today, Angela is now the mother of two daughters, ages eighteen and five. She says she’s proud to be a good example to them. “I’m proud to show them the last couple of years have been worth it. That we, as women, can work in this trade.” Angela eventually wants to own her own business and plans to take more classes at Fresno City College in electrical and construction, then business classes. Amarisa Gonzalez

Amarisa Gonzalez, a molecular and cell biology student has a strong passion for the sciences and takes every opportunity to expand her knowledge. Amarisa was awarded the Dean’s Medallion Award in the Math, Science and Engineering division this spring. She earned two degrees in biology from Fresno City College, an Associate in Science degree and an Associate in Science Degree for Transfer. During her last semester at FCC, Amarisa was accepted into Project PoSSUM at the International Institute for Astronauti- cal Sciences (IIAS) at Florida Tech in Melbourne, FL. Only ten students get accepted, internationally, per class. The program prepares its candidates for suborbital human space flight to build unprecedented models of this region of our atmosphere through tomographic imaging and in-situ sampling of nocti- lucent clouds.

This impressive FCC student graduated from Leon S. Peters Honors program last May, was president of the Phi Theta Kappa Honors Society’s FCC Chapter, Vice President of FCC’s Science and Engineering Club and a biology and chemistry tutor. She is a first-generation college student who is now attending UC Berkeley.




Year-end Success for Class of 2023 Through the efforts of faculty and staff, the college once again increases the number of students earning degrees

Despite the warm May evening, a record number of students and their families attended the 2023 FCC Commencement Cer- emony that was held for the first time at Ratcliffe Stadium. Over 13,000 family and friends attended the graduation ceremony filling up the stadium. After opening remarks from FCC Presi- dent Robert Pimentel and Academic Senate President Michael Takeda, diplomas were then distributed to the graduates. “ …our students are resilient and continue to move through their educational pathways to accomplish their career goals. ”

“We’re proud to have another record-breaking graduation for Fresno City College. Despite having gone through two years of the COVID-19 Pandemic and statewide shutdowns, our students are resilient and continue to move through their educational pathways to accomplish their career goals,” said President Pimentel. The Class of 2023 earned a total of 2,547 degrees.This was the third straight year there was an increase in the number of degrees awarded. The degrees earned by students included Associate in Science and Associate in Arts degrees and Asso- ciate Degrees for Transfer.




Eighty-three of the graduates were Dual Enrollment students. These students earned both their high school diplomas and an associate degree in the same year. There were 49 seniors from Design Science Middle College High School, 33 from Career Technical Education Charter High School (CTEC), and one from Hallmark Charter School. Established in 2005, Design Science

has a 100% graduation rate with 100% accepted to a 4-year university or college. Design Science is located on the Fresno City College campus. FCC continues to remain competitive. The college’s programs, offerings and free services to our students provide a multi- pronged approach to completion and transfer. Many students in this graduating class had their world changed with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. For some, they started their col- lege journey virtually and never stepped foot on campus. For others, they came back to in-person classes with restrictions and mandates. By offering free tuition and other incentives like free textbooks hundreds of students persisted and succeeded. Other free non-academic assistance, like providing food at the Ram Pantry, also helped to increase the completion rates. The college is unlocking the future for thousands of Central Valley residents.

New Era


UC Merced Promise Pathway

On October 31, Fresno City College President Dr. Robert Pimentel hosted UC Merced Chancellor Juan Sanchez Muñoz for the signing of the Merced Promise Pathway Program memorandum of understanding. The transfer partnership further extends access for FCC students by providing a dedicated transfer counselor with expertise in UC Merced transfer admissions and knowledge of FCC’s support services. Dr. Pimentel says the Merced Promise Pathway Program will provide better access to FCC students to continue their education and will provide them with many great opportunities. “We are excited to strengthen our partnership with our neighbors to the north. This agreement will help provide a clear path for our students to transfer to UC Merced and stay closer to home,” he said. “Our goal is to send 1,000 students to UC Merced in the next five years.” “In signing this agreement, we honor that original purpose that impelled (the) UC system to place its newest campus in the Central Valley,” Chancellor Muñoz said.

Men of Color Summit For the second year, the Men of Color Summit was held at FCC on March 24, 2023. Fresno City College, Reedley College, Clovis Community College, and Madera Community College partnered and organized the summit to bring more than 300 local high school male students of color to the summit. With a nationwide decline in college enrollment of men of color, the pres- idents of these colleges found a need to offer this summit once again to help curb that decline and show men of color that there is a place for them in higher education. The summit included special speakers and sessions designed to present information to help the students learn about higher education and how to successfully meet future goals. Students were greeted by Fresno City Col- lege President, Dr. Robert Pimentel; Madera Community College President, Dr. Angel Reyna; and SCCCD Chancellor, Dr. Carole Goldsmith. Attendees heard from Dr. Kent Willis, CSU Fresno Vice President, Division of Student Affairs and Enrollment Management; and Dr. André Stephens, Fresno Pacific University President. The keynote speaker was Richard “TJ” Jennings, Reed- ley College head men’s basketball coach.

Community Engagement


Construction Updates Parking Structure Since 2020, Fresno City College has had five major construction projects funded by Measure C which was approved by voters in 2016. The long-awaited parking structure was the first project to be completed and opened in December 2022. For decades students, employees and the community have asked for a parking structure to help alleviate the lack of parking at the college. Now, it is a reality! The structure includes: • 5 parking levels • 862 total parking stalls • 126 additional adjacent surface parking stalls West Fresno Center Opens The opening of the West Fresno Center on August 7 was historic and successful with 1000 students attending classes. The center sits on 39 acres with 110,000 square feet of state-of-the-art academic and automotive lab space located at Church and Walnut Avenues. The West Fresno Center will provide much-needed access to higher educa- tion and offer diverse training opportunities in the automotive industry.

The $87.1 million project is funded by $70 million from facilities bonds and $16.5 million from the City of Fresno’s Transformative Climate Community (TCC) allotment. TCC funds are given to disadvantaged communities to provide local economic, environ- mental and health benefits while reducing greenhouse gas emissions. In addition, the City of Fresno is providing off-site improvements, a new neighborhood park and improved public transportation services to the new campus with its electric transit buses.

First Responders Campus The First Responders Center is on approximately 40 acres at Willow and North ave- nues in Southeast Fresno. The Police and Fire Academies share the campus. In late August, the academies began moving in. The $46.1 million campus houses fire training structures, a scenario village for police training and simulation spaces. Funding for the campus came from Measure E (2002) and Measure C (2016) bonds. The design of the First Responders Campus is unique with modular construction. The American Modular Systems design team worked with the Fire and Police academies in planning the space at the new campus. New Science Building The new $88 million science building will feature modern labs across several science disciplines and will also house Design Science Middle College High School, tutorial spaces and flexible student study areas. The new building is being built along Black- stone and Weldon avenues. When it opens, it will help alleviate some of the parking demands on campus and will serve as a new front door to the college. Construction began in June 2021 with an anticipated opening in June 2024. Child Development Center Increases Size The $16.8 million Child Development Center is a two-story facility and will offer an engaging environment that promotes both early childhood development as well as higher education in early childhood development. With over 24,500 square feet of space, it will more than triple the amount of space at the current center. The current facility, built in 1985, consists of roughly 5,326 square footage in modular buildings. Construction is expected to be completed by the end of 2023.


Program Spotlights


Dental Hygiene Receives Green Light for Bachelor’s Program In March, FCC received provisional approval for the first bachelors’ program for the Dental Hygiene program. Traditionally, community college offer two-year associate degrees, but since the 2017-18 aca- demic year, the state has moved to pilot four-year bachelor’s degree programs at community colleges. According to Lorraine Smith, the Dean of Instruction, Allied Health, Physical Education & Athletics Division, a bachelor’s degree is not required to work in the dental hygiene field, students need 107 units to earn an associate’s degree in dental hygiene. “They only need 13 more units to earn a bach- elor’s degree. This degree recognizes the work that students currently complete; we believe that not awarding a bachelor’s degree disadvantages students from future opportunities,” said Smith. The profession is moving towards awarding bachelor’s degrees – 27% of statewide awards in 2020-2021 were bachelor’s degrees. Dental offices surveyed prefer students with a bachelor’s degree. “The bachelor’s degree opens opportunities for students in closely related fields like dental education, corporate health, public health, and other leadership roles in the community,” she added.

The California Community College Chancellors Office DataMart reports that 500 students, represent- ing 27% of all program awards, were awarded bachelor’s degrees in dental hygiene over the last five years, demonstrating strong student interest in the programs.

Student Transfers Student transfers reflect the commitment of students to obtain advanced degrees. Over the past ten years, 31 students who graduated with an Asso- ciate of Science degree in Dental Hygiene from Fresno City College transferred to other institutions. Tiny Homes Project

Students in the FCC construction program will be doing their part to help alleviate the City of Fresno’s critical need for affordable housing and help the unhoused population. Construction classes will be working on the City of Fresno’s Tiny Homes Project. Students will be building 24 tiny homes over the next five years that the city will then place in areas to be announced. The City will provide $849,209.00 to fund the construction of these special homes. The tiny home grant comes from the city of Fresno’s American Rescue Plan Act money, which is federal funding approved by Congress and President Joe Biden to aid economic recovery during the pandemic. The college is using design plans supplied by California Tiny House, a Fresno based tiny home builder. Each tiny home includes one-bedroom, 8 -by- 20-foot homes built on wheels and includes a bathroom and mini kitchen. The homes are being constructed on campus by students in two construction courses, foundations and framing, and interiors and exteriors.
