26391424874_c822806f2b_cCongratulations to Ryan Chiao, Laney College President’s Medallion Award Winner for 2016. Chiao has an outstanding set of accomplishments and here is his story in his words:

AA Degrees earned from Laney College this May 2016:

  • Accounting
  • Humanities
  • Business Administration
  • Cosmetology

First and foremost, I must give due credit to all the kind and caring people who have spent their time and effort profoundly shaping and influencing my educational journey here at Laney College. I am an ordinary individual who was fortunate enough to undergo a remarkable transformation; it has positively impacted my personal and academic achievement while attending Laney. If I had not received guidance and mentoring from this institution, it is doubtful I would have been able to achieve academic success, employment as an accounting tutor, or the opportunity to participate in community service initiatives. I have been enlightened by this institution to see myself with purpose and distinction in this world. Laney College has not only lifted me up, it has enabled me to manifest the ability to lift up others. The rightful course of action is to give back to society what this institution has given to me and to realize a directive for helping others achieve. I endeavor to approach the world with kindness, compassion, and great humility in helping others. It is truly heartwarming to have my hard work in academia, my service for the community, and my love for Laney College recognized. One day, I hope to become a pillar of this community and give back because it is the right thing to do.

Outstanding Grads: Samantha Rushing, BCC President’s Medallion Award Winner

16 May 2016

Samanta Rushing EditSamantha Rushing is this year’s President’s Medallion Award winner from Berkeley City College.

Rushing knew early that she wanted to be an English teacher. Growing up just outside Stockton, she wished her teachers were more inspiring. At age 16, she decided that teaching would be her professional goal and, although there were a few bumps along the road, that goal has never waivered.

At Berkeley City College, Rushing maintained a 3.92 GPA. She credits the EOPS and CalWORKs programs for helping her realize her goal. And it helped that BCC teachers, staff and administrators genuinely care about students and do everything in their power to help them stay on the right path, Rushing says.

The future teacher was hired as an English tutor her first semester at BCC and has helped dozens of students since. She has also served as the Secretary of the Associated Students at Berkeley City College. A single parent of a four-year-old girl, Rushing was accepted to UC Santa Cruz, Sacramento State University and California State University, East Bay, and she is waiting to hear from UC Davis and UC Berkeley.

Peralta Colleges Say “No” to Vaping on Campus

14 May 2016

No vapingStudents attending the Peralta Colleges (Berkeley City College, College of Alameda and Laney and Merritt Colleges in Oakland) will be able to “Escape the Vape,” thanks to a new policy on e-cigarette use which has been added to the existing prohibitions against smoking cigarettes and using other tobacco products in all indoor areas and most outdoor areas at the four Peralta Colleges.

On March 15, Peralta Chancellor Jowel C. Laguerre, Ph.D., updated the District’s administrative code prohibiting smoking to include the use of vaping products, as summarized in the district’s 2015-16 Personal Safety Handbook.

“Our goal is to create a safe and healthy environment for all of our students and staff. Secondhand emissions from ‘vaping’ devices contain toxins and have no place on our campuses,” Chancellor Laguerre said.

The Peralta Colleges joins the University of California system in banning the use of electronic cigarettes in all enclosed areas and most outdoor areas. Fines for violations begin at $40 and will be implemented after a six-month grace period.

A new state bill, AB 1594 (McCarty-D), introduced in January 2016, bans the use of all tobacco products, including electronic smoking devices, on all state and community college campuses. The bill has passed the Assembly floor and is headed to the state senate. If the bill passes in the Senate and is then signed by the governor, the law would take effect Jan. 1, 2018. Peralta’s new rules will begin protecting students and staff long before the state “catches up.”

As with most tobacco control efforts in California, the move to control and limit public use of electronic cigarettes came first from local communities. The first Tobacco-Less Club was established in 2011 at Berkeley City College, and in 2013, student members were the first to raise the issue of restricting electronic cigarette use on campus with school administrators. There is now a Tobacco-Less club on the Merritt campus as well.

The clubs have also been educating students about the health harms of flavored tobacco products, as well, which are being heavily marketed to youth in the form of low price candy and fruit-flavored little cigars.

The revised Peralta administrative procedure code on smoking can be found here: http://web.peralta.edu/trustees/files/2013/12/AP-3570-Smoking.pdf

Laney College Biomanufacturing Students Help Local Company Accelerate Process Development

13 May 2016

LaneyBioManufacturing

With the San Francisco-based Ardra Bio, Inc., continuing the development and scale-up of bio-based 1,3-butanediol, students from the Biomanufacturing Program at Laney College, Oakland, are helping to accelerate the process. The students are developing the skill sets required in biotechnology industry, working under the guidance of Dr. Jonas Muller, Chief Scientific Officer at Ardra. The collaborative effort was initiated by Douglas Bruce (Instructor, Biomanufacturing), who believes that hands-on experience is invaluable in preparing students for the industry and, thus, reached out to IndieBio for potential opportunities for his students.

Ardra is a bio-based specialty chemicals company incubated at IndieBio, San Francisco, and is currently developing a fermentation-based process for production of the specialty chemical 1,3-butanediol (commonly known as butylene glycol).

Working with Ardra provides the Laney College students exposure to the biotech start-up environment, and gives them an opportunity to test the skills learnt through the biomanufacturing program. Students are helping Ardra with various activities including fermentation runs, sample analysis, and also research activities towards new product discovery.

“I am very proud of the development of our biomanufacturing program, and the exciting opportunities for our students to collaborate with industry professionals at the same time as they are continuing their studies at Laney College,” said Dr. Leslie Blackie, Biomanufacturing Program Director. “Our program is a career technical education program, emphasizing hands- on skills and placement in the workforce. I am also really excited about the expanding directions our instructor, Doug Bruce, is taking the program, with the new partnerships between biotech startup companies and the students at Laney College,” added Dr. Blackie.

This exciting collaboration between Laney College and one of Indie Bio’s startup companies is allowing biomanufacturing students to get real world experience in cutting-edge science. Laney College students are working along side scientists and getting additional hands-on time with the bioreactors and analytical equipment. Two of the students working with Ardra have already accepted job offers at biotech companies, and the training they received in the biomanufacturing program gave them a huge leg up in the job interview process.

Peralta Community College District Receives Top Bond Rating

5 May 2016

Ron Little

Fitch Ratings has assigned an “AAA” rating to the Peralta Community College District’s upcoming issuance of Refunding and New Money General Obligation Bonds. It is anticipated that these ratings will result in significant savings to the District’s taxpayers.

The “AAA” Rating takes into account the strong local economy, tax base and the District’s overlapping debt, as well as the District’s statutory lien on tax revenues.  Along with the rating, Fitch has assigned the District an “AA” Issuer Default Rating.  This rating takes into account the District’s operations and management, additional financial liquidity in addition to the local economy, tax base, and overlapping debt.

Fitch Ratings used a new rating methodology for general obligation bonds that resulted in the ‘AAA’ rating. Ron Little, Peralta’s Vice Chancellor, Finance & Administration (pictured), was an early advocate of this methodology when he served as CFO at the San Diego Unified School District. He and a team from Citi paved the way for its development.

“Vice Chancellor Little’s insights led to the right framework for our bond ratings at the Peralta Colleges, as well as for public schools statewide,” said Peralta Community College District Chancellor Jowel C. Laguerre, Ph.D.

“We are pleased that our rating will provide good returns for our voters and citizens,” Chancellor Laguerre added.

In addition to being the first California community college district with a AAA GO rating from Fitch under their special tax methodology, Peralta Colleges shares the distinction of receiving the highest Issuer Default Rating (IDR) for any K-14 district in California at AA.

The District worked with finance partners KNN Public Finance LLC, Citi and Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe, LLP, to receive the rating.

Laney College Passive House Ribbon Cutting

4 May 2016

IMG_0699Plan on attending the Laney College Passive House Ribbon Cutting on Wednesday, May 25, 2016, Noon – 2:00 pm, at 453 Ashton Avenue, Oakland.

For the past 20 years, the Laney College Carpentry Department, the Rotary Club of Oakland, the City of Oakland and Passive House California, have partnered to provide hands-on opportunities for Laney Carpentry students by building or substantially renovating a home from foundation to finish. This year’s project is particularly unique because it incorporates sustainable concepts to provide the ultimate in comfort and indoor air quality.

The goal is to certify the house to International Passive House standards: this entails meeting performance-based criteria with regards to air tightness, insulation, heat recovery ventilation and energy usage. It will be the first home certified in Oakland and one of only a few in the Bay Area. Based on the high performance mandates: utility bills for this house are projected to average around $10/month.

Laney students performed most of the work on the house — except for plumbing, electrical, roofing and mechanical system installations. Upon completion, the house will be sold to a low or moderate income buyer. The City of Oakland provided the property, and the Laney College Carpentry Department recruited, taught and supervised the students. Passive House California helped design and was the primary consultant, Berkeley Contractor Christopher Polk managed the construction, and Oakland Rotary Development, LLC. administered the project and managed the construction funds, which were from the sale of a previous “house building” project. An Oakland Rotary realtor is donating his services to handle the sale of the house.
