California Community Colleges Black and African American Advisory Panel
Published: May 6, 2020
The California Community Colleges’ Vision for Success focuses on full and open access to higher education and improved student outcomes for all Californians. To that end, the Chancellor’s Office is working to increase the lagging enrollment and completion rates of Black and African American students at college campuses throughout the state.
Due to the impacts from COVID-19, the North/Far North Center of Excellence is sharing a bi-weekly summary of findings from the COE’s workforce measures and reporting by other agencies in the region and state. In these unprecedented times, some data points that we have traditionally used do not reflect the current economic disruption; however, we are bringing to you the most accurate information we have available at this time.
If you’re anything like us, you’ve been both anticipating and dreading the April employment numbers as they represent the first full month where the stay home order was in place. The data reported below are unprecedented – spiking unemployment, decreased labor force participation, and double-digit industry losses. And it will not be surprising to see similar or worsening numbers with the upcoming release of May’s jobs data (expected on June 19).
The reopening of the economy that is happening now will be the next pivot point for job trends. So bear with us for several more weeks of anticipation, this time tinged with hope, until we know to what extent June will reverse the April and May trends.
Thank you and be well,
The COE Team

NFNRC News Center – January 2020
Blue uniforms. Green wallets.
With demand for qualified law enforcement professionals climbing, it pays to be a police officer. And when it comes to earning a six-figure salary while serving a community, College of the Siskiyous’s POST Academy is a pretty good place to start.
“A student can show up here with no training,” says POST Law Enforcement Academy Director Lieutenant Jeremiah LaRue. “They can spend as little as just a couple thousand dollars … and they can get a job where you’re making a hundred thousand dollars a year with benefits.
“Talk about return on investment.”
For Veteran student Devin Paulus, POST (which stands for Peace Officer Standards and Training) was the “perfect fit.”
News Center – November 2019
Imagine you’re in charge of a class of preschoolers who are climbing, jumping, throwing foam chairs, and just having a riot of a time. “I was at the end of my rope,” says Margarita Rankin, who was teaching full-time while attending Folsom Lake College’s Early Childhood Education (ECE) program to build career skills. While supervising her class on a particularly wild day, she had an “a-ha” moment – realizing the perfect application of her FLC studies. “In my class, I learned about patience,” says Rankin, who left her career in the “rat race” of sales and returned to school in her 50s to follow her calling in pre-K education. “I needed to have a paradigm shift.”
