SCTCC is a diverse, multicultural, multilingual, multi-abled, multigendered, multigenerational and global community. We embrace diverse perspectives and experiences of race, class, gender, and where they meet.

We provide the education, training, and support necessary for equitable participation in our society, economy, and democracy. We embrace diverse perspectives and experiences of race, class, gender, and their intersections.

“The College has 8 shared beliefs that together, help set expectations and establish norms for how we will work together to advance our mission and achieve our vision. This Center is just one way we are holding ourselves accountable for living our shared beliefs. This center is an example of how we walk the talk,” says Annesa Cheek, SCTCC President.

      Because the health and safety of our staff and guests is a priority, everyone entering the center will follow the guidelines and directives from the CDC and industry experts. 

      All students, staff, faculty and guests must always be masked while inside of any campus building. We are vigilant in our attention to detail when cleaning event spaces and all public areas. Added measures include:

      • Increasing cleaning and sanitization of all surfaces
      • Increasing the amount of hand sanitizer stations at events.
      • Regularly connecting with staff about the latest directives from the CDC.
      • Maintaining strict handwashing guidelines.
      • Ensuring the staff member adhere to our sick leave policies and stay home when they do not feel well.

      We encourage our guests to:

      • Wash hands regularly
      • Avoid touching your face
      • Cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing
      • Consider alternatives to shaking hands.
      • Stay home if you do not feel well.
