Attend or watch voter forum at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday to hear SFCC governing board candidates
The Santa Fe League of Women Voters will present its final candidate forum to inform voters about the candidates in the upcoming Santa Fe Nov. 7 election.
Hear from the two candidates, Lorenzo Dominguez and Lina Germann, who are seeking a position on the SFCC governing board during the 6:30 p.m. Oct. 10 forum in the Jemez Rooms. If you can’t attend in person, you can watch a livestream of the forum on the Santa Fe New Mexican website. That evening’s forum will also include candidates for the Santa Fe Public School Board.
The Santa Fe Reporter writer Mo Charnot profiled the two candidates in the Sept. 14 story, “Two Seek SFCC Board Seat: Challengers vie to increase engagement, expand programs at community college.” The two are vying for an open position. Board members serve six-year terms. From that story: The open position is currently held by board Chair George Gamble, who tells SFR he decided not to run again because he believes the body “needs new ideas, new passions, new DNA every once in a while” and that it is “time for some new perspectives.”
The League of Women Voters asks everyone to RSVP here to attend in-person or to watch livestream sessions. To get the latest news from the forums and livestream options, check The Santa Fe New Mexican web site: https://www.santafenewmexican.com/ Last week anyone could go to the website and watch the voter forum livestreams whether or not you are a subscriber. If possible, Campus Weekly will post a copy of the forum video next week in Campus Weekly.

Important: Don’t forget to vote on the SFCC bond!
Visit https://www.votesfcc.com/ to learn more details about the SFCC bond. SFCC urgently needs these funds to repair peeling stucco and so much more! There is not enough money in SFCC’s general fund to pay for upgrades that are needed now!
The SFCC local bond is not about creating new spaces. Instead, it is about reimagining, renewing and rehabilitating our existing spaces to more efficiently serve our students and the community. The goal is to create a more streamlined, safe and enjoyable experience for everyone on campus. Bond funding would also help us upgrade technology to deliver high-quality education in classroom, workshop and lab settings as well as remotely.
Bond allocations focus on the areas of greatest need identified in the SFCC Master Plan.
The facilities and technology upgrades are intended to develop a framework for our projected needs and growth over the next 10 years. SFCC is using available capacity to issue new bonds because it has paid off prior bonds. The debt service is remaining the same. The 2023 Bond would NOT increase property tax rates and would actually slightly decrease property tax rates.
SFCC recognizes and honors our Indigenous faculty, staff and students. The following is the SFCC Land Acknowledgement Statement:

SFCC Library presents online reading from ‘The Longdream,’ by Austin Eichelberger at 5 p.m. Nov. 15
What: Santa Fe Community College Library presents an online reading from SFCC professor Austin Eichelberger’s novel-in-progress, “The Longdream.”
About the book (Brief description of the work in progress for back cover): The fall could have killed Darren, but instead, slipping off his apartment balcony restarts his life. After a month-long coma, Darren wakes up in a Denver hospital to his wife crying over him—the wife he’d divorced in his coma dream. Now awake and more reliant on her than ever, Darren must learn to live in his injured body as he’s haunted by lists of rules for masculinity and memories of the man he fell in love with while unconscious. Back at a job he hates and dealing with estranged family, his artistic joy foundering and grief from his father’s suicide festering, Darren must decide what life he wants and make it his waking reality.
Who: Austin Eichelberger is an Assistant Professor of English and Writing at Santa Fe Community College. He completed his MA at Longwood University in 2009 and his MFA in Fiction at the Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA) in 2018. Originally from the Appalachian region of Virginia, he is a creative consultant and visual artist in Santa Fe, New Mexico. More than 80 pieces of his creative writing have been published by journals and anthologies, including “Flash: The International Short-Short Story Magazine,” “Pithead Chapel” and “Nanoism.” His visual art recently appeared in “The Pinch.” He was a finalist in the 2016 Larry Brown Short Story Award and in 2017 he was nominated for a Pushcart Prize.

The SFLR editors wrote in this issue’s letter to the reader:
““There’s no hiding something that wants to be found,” writes Melissa Darcey Hall in her story, “Leave the Bone Buried.” Creation is like that: that which was hidden rises to the surface, manifesting in ways the artist might never have intended—or imagined. Once fashioned, a good myth takes on a life of its own, evolving over time through countless retellings. And for the writers and artists—the makers of myths—it’s so often the case that our message, our voice, finds us, and not the other way around […]
Through dozens of manifestations, the myth lies at this issue’s core, and with it, a celebration of every story wishing to be found.”
The SFLR is created each year by SFCC faculty, students, and alumnae. This year’s issue features work by contributors from SFCC, Santa Fe, and around the world, and also includes an interview with Amber McCrary, a Diné artist and the founder of Abalone Mountain Press.
Paralegals of Santa Fe Networking Group meeting Oct. 26 at HEC

U.S. Dept. of Ed officials praise SFCC’s leading work in higher education
U.S. Department of Education Under Secretary James Kvaal and Assistant Secretary for the Office of Career, Technical, and Adult Education Amy Lloyd visited SFCC, as well as Navajo Technical University and Diné College on Monday, Sept. 25.
“New Mexico is at the vanguard of how we as a nation can make college affordable and what is possible when higher education isn’t priced out of students’ reach. New Mexico is really ahead of the curve when it comes to some of the challenges facing students today, and the incredible investments are paying off in helping students earn credentials and get jobs,” Under Secretary Kvaal said.
“New Mexico is an exemplar for free college programs that equitably increase opportunity for people to pursue postsecondary credentials, which is one of the many reasons why we’re here,” said Assistant Secretary for the Office of Career, Technical, and Adult Education Amy Loyd. “Community colleges like Santa Fe Community College, my alma mater, help students develop a college identity while being responsive to both student and industry needs.”
From the beginning of her administration, Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham has made college access and affordability a priority. New Mexico passed the Opportunity Scholarship Act in 2022, creating the nation’s most inclusive tuition-free college program, which has since benefited 36,000 New Mexicans, the majority of whom are first-generation college students and students of color. The state has also more than doubled the number of working health care professionals and teachers receiving debt relief through state-funded student loan repayment programs.
The U.S. Department of Education under the Biden-Harris Administration continues to prioritize support for Minority Serving Institutions and addressing the student debt crisis, particularly as U.S. Supreme Court decisions struck down the nearly 50-year precedent of race-conscious admissions in higher education and stopped the administration’s student debt relief program earlier this year.
All 29 public colleges and universities in New Mexico enroll enough Hispanic and Native American students to qualify for the federal designation of Minority Serving Institutions, including four tribal colleges, 24 Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs) and four Native American Nontribal Serving Institutions (NANTSIs). New Mexico also graduates a higher proportion of Hispanic students than any other state.
“In a moment where college access and affordability are being called into question on a national level, I am proud that New Mexico is leading through example by implementing the country’s most progressive tuition-free college program, dramatically expanding student debt relief, and increasing supports for a wide array of students,” said Acting Higher Education Secretary Patricia Trujillo, Ph.D. “We are honored that the U.S. Department of Education recognizes New Mexico as a state that believes in the power of higher education, and we will continue to do whatever it takes to make it possible for historically underserved students to not only come through the doors to college but also walk across the stage on graduation day.”
At SFCC, officials learned about how first-generation, parenting students, and other non-traditional students are being helped through the college’s many student support programs. At least one in every three SFCC students are also parents of young children and are eligible for on-campus childcare through the college’s Early Childhood Center of Excellence. SFCC also serves a high proportion of undocumented and DACA students, many of whom have grown up in the Santa Fe area.
“I’m proud of our students, who shared their compelling stories with Under Secretary Kvaal and Assistant Secretary Loyd during their visit to the college,” said SFCC President Becky K. Rowley, Ph.D. “Under Secretary Kvaal was clearly invested in what the students had to say, while SFCC alumna Assistant Secretary Loyd connected with the students’ experiences and challenges. The conversation is sure to have provided informed and thoughtful feedback for our U.S. Department of Education officials to consider.”

SFCC Library presents Genevieve Betts: Online Poetry Reading, “A New Kind of Tongue” at 6 p.m. Oct. 18
About the book: As a collection, Genevieve Betts’ “A New Kind of Tongue” includes poems that are sometimes quirky, sometimes lyrical, sometimes edgy, and sometimes humorous. Language—our understanding of it, its regionality, and its many intricacies—is a main theme rooted within the book’s strong sense of place. Between the East Coast, specifically Brooklyn, and the Southwest, specifically Santa Fe, comparisons are made, narratives are shared, and observations are acknowledged.
A series of centos is also braided throughout this collection that exclusively uses language from outside texts such as Haruki Murakami’s “Kafka On the Shore,” Tom Robbins’ “Even Cowgirls Get the Blues,” David Mitchell’s “Ghostwritten,” and Angela Carter’s short story “The Bloody Chamber.” Betts reshapes the language of these texts to speak her own voice through the voices of others. This voice and her lens takes a feminist perspective with subject matter that includes family, work, the political climate, and other aspects of life, revealing hidden truths alongside shared truths of these recently-lived experiences.
For more information, please contact Valerie Nye at the SFCC Library: email@example.com 505-428-1506.
EdReady for student success in English
EdReady is a new application, now available on MySFCC as part of the multiple measures initiative. Many degree plans require completion of ENGL 1110. While there is no pre-requisite for ENGL 1110, students may choose to use EdReady if they are unsure of the English (ENGL) course to take to best support their success. Based on the results of their EdReady assessment, students might choose to enroll in a support lab for their class (ENGL 110L) or take ENGL 100 or another preparatory class before embarking on ENGL 1110. Students might also choose to use the tools in EdReady to review material and prepare on their own before class begins.
EdReady keeps information private. It is only used when a student shares their results with an advisor or faculty member and requests guidance. That makes it a very low-risk and helpful tool for students.
Try it yourself by logging into MySFCC and clicking “EdReady English Assessment.” After a self-assessment, EdReady will record your initial score and provide useful, easy-to-use study materials to help you improve. When you are ready to use your score to help you choose your English classes, you can have Ed Ready generate a report and email it to yourself and anyone you choose, like a professor or an advisor. The report contains both your initial score and the level you are at currently, based on your self-guided study.
If you have questions about using EdReady for English placement guidance, reach out to your Academic Advisor for more information.
Hispanic Heritage Month is September 15 – October 15
Director of Student Engagement & Recruitment Marcos Maez reads Santa Fe County Proclamation with poet Olivia Romo
On Tuesday, September 12, SFCC Director of Student Engagement & Recruitment Marcos Maez had the honor and privilege of participating in the Santa Fe Board of County Commissioners meeting and serve as one of the readers of the Santa Fe County Proclamation for National Hispanic Heritage Month. He read the proclamation with the poet and spoken word artist Olivia Romo.
The introduction starts around the 10 minute and 45 second mark and the reading happens at the 13 minute and 48 second mark.
SFCC’s Visual Arts Gallery opens the art exhibition, “Entwined: Memory, Experience, Serendipity” featuring the art of Ilse Bolle, with a reception from 4 to 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 14. The public is welcome to attend the free reception with refreshments at the Visual Arts Gallery. The exhibition continues through Oct. 11.
Ilse Bolle’s fiber constructions are a fascinating combination of mixed media and sculpture. Bolle uses paper she makes by hand, twigs she harvests from the local landscape and waxed linen thread, which she uses to construct a simple, strong sculptural form. Found pieces of rusted metal, ubiquitous in the arroyos around Santa Fe, are then added to the composition. The juxtaposition of natural and man-made elements creates a remarkably earthy, stable beauty. At the same time, Bolle’s work maintains an aesthetic that captures and releases an emotional reaction.
Director of Art on Campus Linda Cassel said, “We’re pleased to showcase the creative work of Ilse Bolle. Her artwork invites the viewer to experience her clever artistic interplay of unconventional and traditional natural materials, which presents a refreshing illustration of conviviality and life.”
Ilse Bolle bio:
After immigrating from Germany in 1969, Ilse Bolle raised a family and continued her education at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, Illinois. She achieved a BS Ed. in Art Education in 1982 and a MA in Studio Art in 1987. For 26 years, Ilse taught art in the public schools while maintaining a working studio. After she retired from teaching, she and her late husband moved to Santa Fe where she concentrates on her art full-time.
Ilse’s work was chosen for the 8th International Triennale of Tapestry in Lodz, Poland, and exhibited and collected by private and corporate collectors throughout the United States, Germany, Canada and Mexico.
“While growing up in rural Germany, I developed a special bond with nature. I loved creating with seedpods, tree bark, twigs, vines and grasses and, to this day, still gather most of the materials that I incorporate in my work.
Layers of handmade paper, with inclusions of textural elements, and knotted stick structures of willow and tamarisk are the bases for my fiber constructions. This process allows me to enclose space and explore the relationship between flat and curved surfaces. Process is very important to me, and I strive for simple, yet strong forms, always working with the natural color of the materials.
Paper and the process of making it has become an essential element in my work. The meshing and bonding of individual fibers create a strong yet pliable substance rich in texture. I enjoy slight, tactile imperfections and often emphasize them for their organic beauty.
Found objects in the form of rusted metal find their way into my work. I value the past and its remains, for they provide insight and context to the present and connections to the future.”
SFCC hosted Battle Under the Hood challenge at Capital High on Sept. 27
SFCC hosted the third annual “Battle Under the Hood” challenge at Capital High on Wednesday where four competing teams diagnose problems with four vehicles. A 1999 Porsche Carrara and a Slingshot were also showcased.

Open House a success, share your feedback
SFCC for the second year partnered with the Institute of American Indian Arts for open houses on both campus. Both institutions got great feedback from visitors.
James Wysong, Dean of the School of Liberal Arts and the School of Art and Design shared this message in a Sept. 22 email:
To everyone who made our Second Annual Joint SFCC – IAIA Open House such a huge success – THANK YOU!
Our best estimate is that we had more than 600 attendees! High school students, members of the community, and invited guests were all treated to a true showcase of what SFCC has to offer. The two most common comments that I heard from our guests were, “what a wonderful facility you have” and “the faculty and staff here are so friendly.” These comments were closely followed by people expressing their surprise that we had such an amazing variety of programs and educational opportunities to offer.
I always cringe when I hear people say, “SFCC is Santa Fe’s best kept secret.” Well, the secret is out. Yesterday, thanks to everyone’s efforts, we made a great deal of progress in introducing folks to their community college!
Now, we begin our planning for next year’s event! While things are still fresh in your mind, please share with your dean, associate dean, or director, any suggestions that you have to improve things for next time. I will follow up with them to get your suggestions to my planning team. Speaking of our team, I want to extend a special thanks to the “MVP” of this amazing team effort, Linda Cassel. Her work in getting this event organized was simply fantastic! Thanks, Linda!
Again, thanks everyone for making this event a success!

Faculty Senate Officers elected for Fall 2023
Congratulations and welcome to the Fall 2023 Faculty Senate officers:
This STEM-focused conversation about teaching practices mini-course is facilitated by STEM faculty in HSIs and delves into the cultural disconnects Latinx students feel when developing STEM identities. Each of the six sessions introduces an evidence-based practice that will provide a more culturally responsive learning experience for Latinx students in STEM courses.
It is a completely asynchronous course and will be completed on your own time. Course fee ($1,800) is paid through Title V Grant. Adjunct faculty are eligible for a stipend of $288 with successful completion.
For those who are new or may benefit from a quick refresher, please don’t forget about our academic referral process. The academic referral form allows both faculty and academic advisors to support students in an intentional and comprehensive way – providing wrap around services to students who are struggling within the classroom.
If you have a student who is struggling in the classroom, please let the advising team know via the academic referral form. The sooner the advising team learns of your concern through the form, which requires campus VPN access, the better as it increases our chance of successfully intervening at a pivotal point in the student’s academic journey.
The electronic form is located on my.SFCC.edu
Click on SFCC Connect (Intranet)
Select Academic Referral 2023-2024, under Featured Links (Left Side of Page)
Referrals are routed instantaneously to an advisor. Advisors then reach out to their advisee via phone/email. They check in, explain the reason for their outreach, and determine how to best help based upon their dialogue with the student in addition to the information submitted within the referral. Depending upon the situation, advisors educate, provide holistic care, strategize with the student, make referrals to others on campus, etc. Once the concern is addressed, the advisor updates the referral status and enters their notes in the system, which will update the faculty member on the outcome of the referral. Faculty access this information by clicking into the referral response via the email confirmation of their submission (click show approval history and then show approval comments).
If you have any questions and/or concerns about this resource, please do not hesitate to reach out via phone at 505-428-1275 or by email at email@example.com.

Following the Manito Trail exhibit continues through Oct. 15
SFCC’s Director of Art on Campus Linda Cassel said, “We’re so pleased to be able to share the rich cultural history shared in the Following the Manito Trail exhibition so well-prepared by the curators at the Millicent Rogers Museum on our campus. It’s an enlightening exhibition that will also touch the hearts of so many Hispanic families from northern New Mexico.”
The Millicent Rogers Museum shares this about the exhibition:
“Following the Manito Trail is a cultural heritage exhibition that shares the migration experiences, creative practices, and largely untold stories of Manito (Hispanic New Mexican) families from Taos County and its surrounding area. These families carried their culture with them through their migrations to other states for seasonal and permanent work during the 19th and 20th centuries. These migrations represent Manito family values in surviving, even if it meant leaving the homes they cherished.”
Their contributions significantly impacted the American West through their labor in sheepherding, coal mining, railroad construction, and the sugar beet fields. Wherever they went, they never forgot their roots in New Mexico, and they shaped their new homes in other states to preserve and adapt their cultural traditions that they brought with them. For some families, the following generations stayed in their diaspora homes, and, for others, they returned to New Mexico. Through their descendants, Manito families carry on the legacy of shaping the northern New Mexico cultural landscape through professions in medicine, the humanities, the arts, linguistics, and agriculture.”
The exhibition highlights Manito family histories; the significance of storytelling, agricultural, poetic, religious and culinary practices to Manito families.
Stop by any time during SFCC campus open hours. Read more about The Manito Trail.
For more information about the exhibition, contact Director of Art on Campus Linda Cassel via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 505-428-1501.

Enhancements to SFCC.edu
In an email on Thursday, June 13 Executive Director of Marketing and Public Relations Todd Lovato shared the following about the public website:
I am writing today to update you on an exciting development on our public website. For more than a year, a team of my MPR teammates have worked on a project to enhance our website offerings for prospective students.
We are pleased to announce that some of these website revisions – which include some updates to program and department pages – are being introduced today. Website updates and adaptations are an ongoing process. I’d like to point out, however, that the focus of these latest revisions was primarily to enhance the experience of prospective students on our site as they navigate the admissions process and explore educational pathways at SFCC. The updates provide enhanced access to career information, registration guidance and support resources. They also address some on-going technical and user navigation issues.
These enhancements have been carefully developed using higher education best practice research, website and search engine optimization (SEO) traffic analytics, consultation with local web developers and writers, as well as ongoing consultation and collaboration with many of our colleagues throughout the campus.
Also, please note that these changes provide MPR with new features and additional ways to collaborate with programs and departments to further improve the website and provide prospective students easier access to information about college programs.
As with any web updates, there is the possibility of small, easily fixable glitches like broken links or re-directs. As we comb for these bugs, I ask for your help by keeping an eye out for anything out of the ordinary. Please contact MPR with these updates using the MPR Job Request Form. This will enable us to quickly address issues. Please continue to review and update your department’s respective webpages for out-of-date or excessive information. Please note, today’s message pertains to the college’s public website, and does not include changes to MySFCC or the SFCC Connect Intranet, which are not under MPR’s purview.
I’d like to thank my MPR team and colleagues across campus for their persistence, collaborative energy, and continued focus on our college’s future students.
We look forward to continuing to work with you in promoting SFCC’s outstanding programs to our community.

Community partners include Santa Fe Public Schools, Santa Fe Indian School, Boys & Girls Club of Santa Fe/Del Norte, and STEM Santa Fe, which will work with the college and Santa Fe Community College Foundation to cultivate digital literacy, digital equity, and coding and creativity experience to Santa Fe’s diverse community.
SFCC President Becky Rowley, Ph.D., said, “Santa Fe Community College is thrilled Apple is supporting our work to offer training in coding and other creative digital skills to young people who have had limited access to such opportunities in the past.”
The initiative will reach youth in a variety of locations primarily in the Santa Fe Public Schools, Santa Fe Indian School, as well as at the Boys & Girls Club based at the Santa Fe Place Mall. STEM Santa Fe will assist with the initiative.

Required COVID-19 Reporting
SFCC continues to monitor and follow guidance from public health officials and state and local government on mitigating and addressing exposure to COVID-19. The State of New Mexico and New Mexico Higher Education Department recently announced they will no longer require the reporting of COVID-19 cases amongst student, staff, and faculty who are on campus via the Rapid Response Submission Portal.
Our college continues to take the transmission and threat of infectious diseases seriously and we remain committed to keeping our community as safe as possible. Please note the following:
The college no longer requires reporting of COVID-19 positive cases to SFCC’s Contact Tracing Team.
However, it is very important we continue keep each other safe and follow health and safety best practices. The college continues to follow guidelines from the CDC Quarantine and Isolation Calculator, which details the following:
You should isolate from others when you have COVID-19.
You should also isolate if you are sick and suspect that you have COVID-19 but do not yet have test results.
Ending isolation is detailed on the CDC’s Isolation and Precautions for People with COVID-19 webpage – “Ending Isolation”.
Positive or suspected positive individuals should coordinate closely with supervisors to make appropriate accommodations, as well as reporting for absences using regular sick leave.
If you are out of sick leave and contracted COVID-19, please contact the Office for Human Resources to determine if other options are available to you.
The college custodial staff continues its rigorous cleaning and disinfecting protocols, which includes a campus-wide daily schedule, with emphasis on bathrooms, and higher traffic and enclosed spaces.
Additionally, Facilities and Operations staff have made significant improvements to college ventilation and filtration systems and those systems are up and running.
The College will continue to follow best practices, community levels, and infectious disease developments.
