SC4 participates in Community College Month

The SC4 Board of Trustees adopted a resolution at their April 11, 2024, meeting recognizing April as Community College Month.

The month is promoted nationally by the Association of Community College Trustees (ACCT) and was recognized with a proclamation by Governor Whitmer.

There are over 1,000 public community colleges in the United States, 31 in Michigan, and one of the first community colleges is located in Port Huron.  SC4 was established in 1923 and is a comprehensive community college offering courses that transfer to 4-year Colleges/Universities, Two-year Associate Degrees and one-year Certificates leading to careers, and a variety of individual training, skill-building, and enrichment courses.  SC4 provides area communities with a highly qualified and credentialed labor force and serves residents through equitable and local access to higher education.

SC4 is participating in #CCMonth, a monthlong education campaign coordinated by ACCT. The primary goals of #CCmonth are to improve awareness of the economic, academic and equity advantages of attending community colleges, and to celebrate the value of public two-year colleges.

“SC4 is vital to our community and our state,” said Kirk Kramer, President of SC4. “#CCMonth is an opportunity to celebrate the importance and value of our College to our community. SC4 has served residents of the community for over 100 years and continues to lead into the future to provide residents with public higher education opportunities.”

The SC4 campus is a major hub of activity for the community providing cultural, athletic, and educational events throughout the year, such as concerts, plays, art galleries, hands-on science exhibits, Challenger Learning Center simulated space missions, Planetarium Experience, Tournaments, Camps, STEM Fest, and the recent Solar Eclipse viewing on campus. 

The SC4 Board resolution read in part, “…renew our passion to offer relevant services committed to educational excellence and our mission to create an academic and cultural environment that empowers students to succeed.” SC4 is proud to provide collegiate-level activities in the community to enrich the lives of all residents.
