At Sonoma State Convocation: Commitment to Outreach and Inclusion

Last week, we talked about Sonoma State’s new approach to remedial learning in English and Math.

Today we return to the Rohnert Park campus, to listen in on remarks by SSU President Judy Sakaki. Her address yesterday to the opening convocation for the academic year emphasized plans to broaden access to the school for underrepresented groups. Steve Mencher has more.

Sakaki also said the university has now been recognized as an Hispanic Serving Institution, which should be a positive development in its quest to reach and serve more of the region's Hispanic students.
