Touch Base Tuesday 12-1-20
Dear Faculty and Staff:
December 1 is an important date in history. On this day in 1955, Rosa Parks refused to relinquish her seat to a white passenger on a segregated bus in Montgomery, Alabama. This courageous act helped advance the civil rights movement and led to a nation-wide effort to end racial segregation. Receiving both the Medal of Freedom and the Congressional Gold Medal, Rosa Parks is recognized as a symbol for human dignity and freedom and a champion in the fight for racial discrimination and injustice.
Another important date is December 3, National Disability Day. The spirit of the day is to ensure that all people in the world – including those with mental and physical disabilities – have equal opportunities for work, play, health, education and success. We are fortunate to have an outstanding Office of Disability Support Services, led by Ms. Paige George, an extraordinary leader at SCC. Did you know that our own Disability Support Services serves close to 500 students in an average semester?

In addition to recognizing the contributions of others, you also have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of SCC students. Today concludes the SCC Foundation’s Giving Tuesday campaign but you can still take part. The first $10,000 in gifts to SCC departments will be matched by the Foundation. Learn about the departments who will benefit from your gift on the Giving Tuesday web page.
Finally, the Library team would like your assistance in reminding students of two opportunities for NotSo-Quiet Study Sessions prepare for Fall final exams which begin on Dec. 8. The Zoom study sessions are open to all students and will be held 2-3:30 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 2, and again from 5-6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 8. These sessions provide students with a time and "space" to do some work, enjoy some study break activities, and talk with their classmates. Reference Librarians and Tutors will be on call - ready to help. Students can find the Zoom links in Canvas notifications or in the mySCC Portal.
