Thanks to a donation from Rotary of Berkeley, students and faculty at Berkeley City College were able to make 12 blankets this semester that will help keep those in need warm this winter. Thanks to a donation from Rotary of Berkeley, students and faculty at Berkeley City College were able to make 12 blankets this semester that will help keep those in need warm this winter.

It is certainly the best time of the year, especially for our community colleges, Laney and Merritt colleges, College of Alameda and Berkeley City College.

Finals are being completed and students and faculty are ready to spend the winter break celebrating the holidays with family and friends. As the semester winds to an end, the spirit of giving was clearly evident at the Peralta Colleges this December.

Enjoy our newspaper column for December, published in the East Bay Times and community newspapers across the Bay Area. There are so many wonderful stories of giving at the Peralta Colleges and everything we do for our community’s students. I feature a few of them in this month’s column which you can read right here:

Remember, if you have a story idea for the column, please write me at jheyman@peralta.edu. 

Have a wonderful winter break and thank you for everything you do for our students.

Happy Holidays!

College of Alameda awarded CCC Maker grant

31 August 2017

 

 

Last month, we were given the good news that College of Alameda (CoA) was awarded the CCC Maker grant. For the first year (July 2017- June 2018), CoA will receive $250,000; funding for the second year (July 2018- June 2019) of the grant will be determined by the performance/outcomes of the first year. The college will also provide match funding to support the lab. Your support was crucial in CoA being awarded this grant, so we want to continue keeping you informed as we move to the next phase.

 

We’ve started the work of implementation, including getting D102-108 ready as well as creating a list of equipment for the lab. To ensure that the equipment meets the needs of its future users, we are continuing the practice of gathering feedback from stakeholders; to  help us sculpt the design of the FabLab/makerspace lab, we ask that you complete a survey to let us know which pieces of equipment you feel would benefit you as a partner.

 

SURVEY:  The survey provides the name of the equipment, its price range, a description of products that can be created with the equipment, and at the bottom a rating of interest to be completed by the person submitting the survey. (Please see below for example of one equipment entry.)

Link to the survey website: http://alameda.peralta.edu/fablab/equipment-survey/

Deadline for survey submission: Monday, September 11, 2017

We look forward to getting your input and ideas as we want the COA FabLab to be user-centered and user-friendly when it opens in spring 2018. Thank you for your ongoing support!

26 July 2017

Peralta_News_Temp

A collaboration between the Psychology department and the Office of Student Activities and Campus Life, the College of Alameda hosted a discussion on ‘Race in the Media’.

It was a student-centered workshop that explored topics such as: how being “othered,” stereotypes, and racism impact such important concepts in psychology such as self-esteem and identity. 

The guest facilitator, Jinni Pradhan provided resources on how people of color and allies can reshape the media to be more inclusive and representative of who many of our Peralta students are and their communities.

The College of Alameda strives to raise the consciousness of all people and empower each and every student with tools and information needed to succeed and more fully shape their lives.
