Sacramento City College Re-Entry Services Comprehensive Plan.
White, Maureen E.; Smith, William A.
Sacramento City College (SCC) established its Re-Entry Services program to provide information, referral and support services to students returning to the academic environment after an absence. Since the inception of the program in 1977, the college community has changed considerably. Among these changes are an aging student population, increased enrollment by women and part-time students, the proliferation of nontraditional job training opportunities, and an increased emphasis on sex equity on campus. Prepared in response to these changes, this report provides a comprehensive plan for SCC's Re-Entry Services. The plan's major components address the need to: (1) provide academic, vocational, and personal advising and refer students to appropriate ancillary services and information resources; (2) offer support services for the retention of re-entry students, including workshops, financial aid, and role models; (3) provide resources for career exploration which emphasize freedom of career choice without regard to traditional sex or ethnic stereotyping; (4) maximize community outreach for the recruitment of potential students; and (5) ensure that the program is staffed and managed well. For each component, specific objectives are stated, along with planned activities and methods of evaluating the achievement of the objectives. The plan includes background information on the program, the need for re-entry services, enrollment trends, cost information, and an outline of the expansion of services. In addition, newly developed job descriptions, case histories of successful program participants, and information concerning the use of Carl D. Perkins Vocational Education Act single parent/homemaker and sex bias funds are provided. (ALB)
