A Message from the

SUPERINTENDENT/PRESIDENT

Anthony E. Beebe, Ph.D., Ed.D. Superintendent/President

I AM PLEASED TO SHARE WITH YOU OUR FIRST ANNUAL REPORT TO THE COMMUNITY! Since coming to Santa Barbara City College a year ago, I have made it a priority for the College to strengthen our ties to our community. In order to achieve this, we have sought input from across our Community College District and have plans in place to be more responsive to the needs in our community. Santa Barbara City College has been a local institution since 1909 and has a rich history of educating generations in our local community. Our college has become an integral part of past, present and future generations of Santa Barbara County residents. This history of excellence has been evident in the stories of former students who achieved their educational goals and in those who continue their City College education. SBCC continues to be recognized as the No.1 community college in the nation—both a testament to the caliber and dedication of our students and our team of faculty and staff.

OUR VISION Santa Barbara City College strives to build a socially conscious community where knowledge and respect empower individuals to transform our world.

This report represents my first year as President of this fine educational institution. I am proud of the work we do—changing the world, one student at a time. This has been a year of change and reflection at the college. We are moving forward with a wide range of initiatives that seek to strengthen our ties to the community and look to the future to ensure we continue to meet the needs of future students.

OUR MISSION As a public community college dedicated to the success of each student... Santa Barbara City College provides students a diverse learning environment

We hope this Report to the Community gives you insight into the many achievements accomplished throughout the 2016-2017 academic school year. Our students, faculty and staff have excelled through their hard work and dedication to the college.

that inspires curiosity and discovery, promotes global responsibility, and fosters opportunity for all.

We are grateful to be in beautiful Santa Barbara, with distinguished faculty, dedicated staff, and a commitment to our students and community—lucky us! Thank you for your continued support of our community’s college. Together onward, Anthony E. Beebe, Ph.D., Ed.D. Superintendent/President

A Message from

OUR FOUNDATION

Geoff Green Chief Executive Officer SBCC Foundation

A MESSAGE FROM OUR FOUNDATION “I simply want to celebrate the fact that right near your home, year in and year out, a community college is quietly—and with very little financial encouragement—saving lives and minds. I can’t think of a more efficient, hopeful or egalitarian machine, with the possible exception of the bicycle.” —United States Poet Laureate Kay Ryan

I love this quote because it puts one simple truth front and center: that community colleges across the country do the hard work of offering educational opportunities to one and all, often without much fanfare. It is hard to think of a more important mission for our families, community or economy.

HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE FIRST YEAR OF THE SBCC PROMISE

Then there is that aside: “...and with very little financial encouragement.” SBCC is exceptional in many ways. Among them is the fact that a broad base of community supporters has long recognized its value and have invested in the institution and its students. The SBCC Foundation was created more than four decades ago to bridge the gap between the available public funds and the resources necessary to be an extraordinary college.

• 756 local students enrolled in the SBCC Promise (Fall 2016) • 85% completed all requirements and enrolled for the Spring 2017 semester

I cannot remember a moment when the eyes of the nation were more focused on the work of community colleges. Student debt is now a national economic crisis ($1.4 trillion and growing), the divide between those with post-secondary education and those without has never been greater, and educators across the country continue to wrestle with the achievement gap between students of different races and ethnicities.

• 93 new local students joined the SBCC Promise in Spring 2017 • Students carried an average load of 13.5 units

This lends urgency to our work at the SBCC Foundation, as we partner with our community and college to secure the resources that will ensure that each and every student has the opportunity to excel and achieve their goals. SBCC has long been an innovator in college access and success programs. With the launch of the SBCC Promise, we are again at the vanguard­, building the country’s most ambitious privately funded college promise.

• Most popular majors: business administration, biological sciences, nursing, psychology and engineering • Total cost was approximately $1.1 million—raised entirely from private donations

I have great hopes for what we can achieve together for our community’s students. And with your help, we will remain a model for communities across the nation. Gratefully, Geoff Green Chief Executive Officer, SBCC Foundation

2016-2017 Report to the Community


Investing in Our

COMMUNITY

SBCC PROMISE In fall 2016, the SBCC Foundation launched the SBCC Promise, an ambitious new effort to remove barriers, and make our community’s college accessible and affordable to all local students who have recently completed their secondary education within the SBCC district. The idea of a “college promise” is not new, but the SBCC Promise is revolutionary in that it is comprehensive (covers all

required fees, books and supplies), robust (covers two full years), and open access (not restricted based on past academic performance). Eligibility is determined by a student’s high school location, year of graduation, and commitment to the SBCC Promise eligibility requirements (details at sbccpromise.org). Research on college achievement correlates a student’s chance of success in college with early enrollment, full-time student status, and access to academic counseling and support. The SBCC Promise is specifically designed to incentivize these three elements. It is also an exemplary model of a public/private partnership, as 100% of the funding for the SBCC Promise was privately raised from donors to the SBCC Foundation. The SBCC Promise reinforces our community college’s commitment to 2016-2017 Report to the Community |

our local community, and strengthens our region’s economy, neighborhoods, and families. Santa Barbara City College is repeatedly ranked among the nation’s top community colleges due to its remarkable faculty and staff, history of innovation, and student achievement. Whether a student wishes to pursue a trade, earn a certificate, complete an AA degree, or transfer to a four-year institution, SBCC is the place and the SBCC Promise provides a new pathway. | 5

38TH ANNUAL FACULTY LECTURE The Faculty Lecture featured Mathematics Professor Pam Guenther, who presented “I Think I Can: Applying Neuroscience and Noncognitive Research in the Classroom.” In her lecture, Guenther explained that many traits, abilities and talents thought to be fixed at birth are actually malleable and can be changed even in adults. This is called neuroplasticity, the ability of the brain to be shaped by experience. Guenther’s fascinating presentation explored current research in this area as well as practical methods of learning that teachers, parents and learners can apply in their daily lives and in the classroom. “SBCC is known statewide for the unique culture on our campus to support and empower faculty in innovation LL E G E CI TY CO and professional development.” R BA RA SA NTA BA

Marilynn Spaventa

In every position she has held, she has excelled, yet never sought the spotlight. Her strong but quiet leadership style shines through in everything she does. Whether she is mentoring a colleague, solving a problem, or supporting faculty in one of her departments, she is always calm, competent and caring.

LEONARDO DORANTES MEMORIAL LECTURE SBCC’s annual Dorantes Lecture, established in memory of a beloved City College student who died in a raciallymotivated tragedy, featured political satirist and host of the CNN television docu-series “United Shades of America” W. Kamau Bell. In his discussion titled “The W. Kamau Bell Curve: Ending Racism in About an Hour,” given the day after the 2016 U.S. Presidential election, Bell offered a comedic, eye-opening discussion on race in America, in addition to his candid musings on the country’s newly-elected President.

SEND SILENCE PACKING Eleven hundred backpacks were spread across the West Campus Lawn. They represented the average number of college students who end their lives each year. The event, created by the nonprofit organization Active Minds, served to de-stigmatize college student suicide, educate and assist students in speaking openly about mental health, and encourage students to get help. Send Silence Packing was co-sponsored by SBCC and the Santa Barbara County Department of Behavioral Wellness and supported by a grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). Many of the backpacks were owned by suicide victims themselves and personal stories written by friends and loved ones were attached to a number of them. 2016-2017 Report to the Community |

Ramos and Washburn both scratched the veneer of contemporary life through the pointed, and often darkly humorous, combination of images appropriated from popular culture and media.

SPRING PRODUCTIONS The Theatre Group at SBCC presented two great productions in the Spring: The touching drama Rabbit Hole, written by David Lindsay-Abaire and directed by Katie Laris; and A Flea in Her Ear, a new version of Georges Feydeau’s hilarious farce directed by R. Michael Gros.

HAPPENINGS

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.
