MUTUALLY BENEFICIAL & ABUNDANTLY GRATEFUL

Our work in community-based learning is grounded on mutual benefit -- creating programs and opportunities that make a positive impact in the community and help in the growth and formation of our students. I could not be more proud of the way that our community-based learning teams stepped up this year to create innovative programs in challenging circumstances and continue to make an incredible impact.

We also recognize that we could not make this impact without the generous support of so many folks, and our recent Day of Giving was a wonderful testament to that. We had a record breaking day and are particularly grateful for the outpouring of support for the newly created Dan McCormick Technology Fund -- a wonderful testament to a phenomenal person and family. We are filled with gratitude for the many partners who join us in our work - here, there, and everywhere.

College Dreams Coming to Fruition

Increasing Access to Tech Products and Programs

Thriving Neighbors' "Abriendo Puertas" (Opening Doors) tutoring program unites faculty and students from SCU's Graduate School of Education and Counseling Psychology with community parents from the Greater Washington neighborhood of San Jose to promote literacy and numeracy development among young learners. Using iPad technology, parents work with SCU graduate students to learn new home-tutoring approaches that support their young children's school readiness. Now, thanks to generous gifts from the McCormick family and friends totaling over $200,000, Washington families will be taking home new devices to support their educational aims over the summer and beyond.
