Milpitas Update—March/April

Things have been very busy at the Extension! The spring semester is in full swing, and approximately 400 SJCC students are attending one of 26 college classes offered this term. In addition to the GE courses offered in the evening, the Extension offers three ESL courses, two ECE courses, and two dual-enrollment courses in partnership with Milpitas Unified School District. We also have 70 students participating in this cohort of TechNest, a hybrid Python coding course offered in partnership with MIT. We also started a JAVA coding academy for kids on Saturdays in partnership with Bay Area Tutoring Association. Currently 50 kids are on campus Saturdays, and when added to the 70 TechNest students, Saturdays are very busy with folks learning to code. The Extension also serves 500 high school students a week in four dedicated classrooms as an extension of MHS during the school day. Add to that the 200+ community members who use the facilities for meetings, trainings, and events each month, and the Extension stays hopping!

One other exciting announcement—the Extension hired Dr. David Lopez as the night administrator on Mondays and Tuesdays. Dr. Lopez formerly served as the president of the National Hispanic University for 15 years and on the California State Board of Education for 6 years. He will be on campus Monday and Tuesday evenings until 9:00 to ensure the students and faculty have everything they need to succeed. We’re lucky to have him on staff!
