Supporting tomorrow's leaders by building the academic excellence of Sacramento State
When you direct your gift to the College of Continuing Education (CCE), you are providing resources for Dean Jenni Murphy to transform opportunity into reality for non-traditional learners. Your generosity provides support that reaches all areas of CCE including technology upgrades, program expansion, emergency assistance for adult learners, and more. A gift of $500 or more to the Dean’s Innovation Fund at CCE will qualify you to become a member of our Dean's Circle.
Dean’s Circle members receive benefits each year including exclusive updates from Dean Murphy, an annual gathering (virtual if necessary) with the dean team at CCE, and opportunities to help the college shape the impact we’re making in our community.
Dr. Jenni Murphy serves is committed to the development and delivery of programs that meet the ever-changing and diverse needs of learners and employers in the region. Dean Murphy’s innovation fund supports programs such as:
- Emergency assistance for adult learners – provide financial support when unexpected situations arise that prevent an adult learner from continuing their education (housing, transportation, family support, health, natural disaster, etc.)
- Near-completers outreach – help adults in our community with fewer than 15 units complete their degree. Provide outreach about degree completion programs to get adults across the finish line and improve their earning potential, economic contribution and personal sense of pride.
- HornetAttain! – develop curriculum, pilot programing, train achievement advisors, convene collaborations, and design toolkits to shrink the wage and educational attainment gap by helping adults finish their degree at Sacramento State
- Build responsive programming - innovate within CCE to meet the demands of employers, supply equipment, and advance opportunities for adults in our community.
Thank you in advance for becoming a Dean’s Circle member. Your support makes a difference for a learner, who may otherwise not be able to complete their education.
