Historical Overview

In November 1999 SFCC sent a 5-person team to the "Critical Moments" workshop sponsored by Washington Center for Improving the Quality of Undergraduate Education. This workshop focused on the development and teaching of case stories that would reflect critical events in the educational experience of our "special populations" of students. SFCC's team consisted of Rich Tucker (Assoc. Dean/Student Services), Adriana Bishop (Physical Science faculty), Robert Schroeder (Library faculty), Barb Williamson (Communications faculty), and a student.

In May 1997 SFCC participated in the "Multicultural Efforts Project, Round III", also sponsored by the Washington Center. A two-day retreat was held at Spokane's Bozarth Center for the six community colleges on the east side of the state.
