YOUTH LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE In an amazing collaborative effort, the Student Equity Committee hosted its First Annual SBCC Equity and Leadership Conference for Youth. More than 700 high school students, City College students and community members joined in as the conference celebrated “belonging” as a community. Focusing on equity and leadership, the conference offered many key moments for embracing SBCC as a safe place for all.
EARTH DAY This year, Earth Day was a major event held on our beautiful West Campus. The event brought representatives from the City of Santa Barbara, Marborg, Heal the Ocean and many more. Throughout the day, groups shared eco-friendly and sustainable solutions with students and the community—all were welcome. President Beebe and Santa Barbara Mayor Helene Schneider spoke about the importance of renewable energy, recycling efforts and the desire to make Santa Barbara and SBCC a more sustainable city and college.
PET THERAPY For finals week, therapy dogs were brought to West Campus outside of Luria Library to relieve student stress. Students smiled as they gathered to pet and play with the friendly dogs. All of the dogs who participated received specialized training with their human partner from All for Animals and are certified as therapy dogs by Love on a Leash, The Foundation for Pet Provided Therapy.
