Pasadena City College Honored as “Champion for Higher Education”

first_img Subscribe For the fifth year in a row, Pasadena City College has been recognized as a “Champion for Higher Education” by the Campaign for College Opportunity.As it has been every year since 2016, PCC was honored by the advocacy group for the college’s success in granting Associate Degrees for Transfer (ADTs), a specialized series of credentials that streamline students’ transfer to four-year universities.According to data collected by the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office, PCC awarded 2,410 ADTs in the 2019-2020 academic year, more than any other community college – and nearly 900 more than in 2018-19.This is the third consecutive year that PCC has led the state.When ADTs were created through SB 1440 in 2010, they connected California’s community colleges to the California State University system. Since then, the transfer pathway has widened to include some University of California institutions, historically Black colleges and universities, and other private colleges and universities.“We are so thrilled to join our colleagues across the state and celebrate this achievement,” said Erika Endrijonas, PCC’s superintendent/president. “Transfer is at the heart of what we do for our community, and these ADTs are a key part of our service in that area. California has 10 years of service through the ADT, and we’re only getting started.”PCC currently offers more than 30 ADTs in a broad range of subjects, and the college has issued nearly 8,500 of the credentials since they were first granted in 2011.The most recent honors were delivered at a virtual event hosted by the Campaign for College Opportunity Thursday, Nov. 19. Among the speakers were Secretary of State Alex Padilla and Asm. Marc Berman, as well as Elizabeth Moreno, a PCC alumna and current Cal Poly student in psychology. In her remarks Ms. Moreno paid tribute to her PCC counselors for her success.In other recent news, PCC was highlighted by the magazine Diverse Issues in Higher Education in its annual summary of colleges that advance diversity. PCC is now No. 3 in the nation in granting degrees to students of minority backgrounds, up from No. 5. In addition, Diverse’s data show that the college is No. 6 nationally (and No. 1 in California) for granting degrees to Latinx students and No. 2 nationally and in the state in degrees to Asian American students (behind Golden West College).Since 1924, Pasadena City College has provided the San Gabriel Valley with a diverse, equity-driven learning community that inspires student success. Our academic programs encompass a variety of degrees, transfer programs, certificates of achievement, and occupational skills certificates that challenge students and support progress toward their goals. Widely recognized as a transfer leader, PCC is consistently one of California¹s top schools for transfers to local universities, including the CSU and UC system, APU, USC, Art Center College of Design, Caltech, and more.

Euro work time ruling weakens Byers’ move

first_imgEuro work time ruling weakens Byers’ moveOn 11 Jan 2000 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. Government efforts to make working time law more flexible for employers areset to be thwarted following a ruling by the Advocate General of the EuropeanUnion.As Secretary of State for Trade & Industry Stephen Byers made hislong-awaited change to the UK law just before Christmas, giving more freedom toemployers, the Advocate General ruled that rights to a shorter working weekshould be strengthened.The new ruling contradicts the Government’s definition of working time, byincluding hours spent on-call under some conditions. The Advocate General’sview is nearly always backed by the European Court of Justice. Confirmation by the court would force the Government into yet anotherrewrite of the regulations which came into force only 15 months ago.”This threatens to be a case of massive significance,” said ChrisMordue, solicitor at leading law firm Pinsent Curtis. “If the EuropeanCourt of Justice upholds this – the most fundamental issue under the law – whatcounts as working time – will need to be reconsidered.”Employers with large numbers of staff on call – utilities, health and otheremergency services – reacted with alarm. Motoring organisation AA said itdetracts from the idea of having staff on call. Philippa Stokes, employeerelations manager at the firm, said the change would make it “extremelydifficult for employers trying to run a business”.Byers’ amendment was approved by Parliament before Christmas. The newregulations scrap record-keeping for those who have opted out of the 48-hourlimit and discount voluntary unpaid extra work. Explanatory guidance has stillnot appeared, but is due by the end of January.The move was welcomed by the CBI, which said its members had expressed reliefand delight at the greater flexibility.The Advocate General was ruling on a case brought by Spanish health unionSimap. ADTIspokesman said, “The UKdoes believe that its interpretation iscorrect but we will look at the opinion and wait for the ruling.By News Team Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more
