The nontraditional student

The diversity at City College is reflected not only with its growing ethnic minority populations, but also in the various social, financial and academic backgrounds of its students.

For years, community colleges and universities were the domain of the traditional student—a student who lived at home or received financial support from his or her parents or a student who entered college right out of high school.

At one point in time, the nontraditional student—students who work full or part-time, older students returning after a long hiatus, or the single parent—was considered an enigma on the college campus. Now, with 63 percent of City College students considered nontraditional, the diversity across our campus mirrors the demographics of campuses across America.

New faces at City College

City College welcomed new and long-term temporary faculty at a Sept. 20 campus reception, as well as honoring the recently tenured.

“This is a great time for us, to acknowledge those individuals to have made it through the tenure process and now become full professors at our institution and also welcome those who are just starting that journey and welcome them to our family,” said Mary Turner, vice president of instructional services.

The mood was celebratory as 11 new faculty members were introduced and five instructors were recognized for receiving tenure. Plaques, flowers, hugs and congratulations were distributed among the small crowd of faculty and administrators in the Rodda Hall North conference room.

Professors recently granted tenure were Tony Davis (counseling), Lynn Fujikawa (nursing), Nadine Kirkpatrick (nutrition), Melodi Randolph (dental assisting), and Gayle Williams (accounting).

Don Button, (second from right) a City College Graphic Communication professor and the faculty adviser for the Sac City Freethinkers club, argued the pro-choice perspective.
