Open House was a big success!

The bronze pourings were a popular attraction at the Open House.

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!

James (Jim) Wysong, Ed.D.

Thank you to Ben Lauer, SFCC Digital Marketing & Recruitment Specialist, for sharing these terrific photos. See many more on SFCC’s Facebook Open House Photo Album.

SFCC Library presents Genevieve Betts: Online Poetry Reading, “A New Kind of Tongue” at 6 p.m. Oct. 18

Pre-Register at:

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: 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.

Exhibit of Ilse Bolle’s art continues through Oct. 11

Rough Around the Edges, 20 x 20 inch handmade paper on board, encaustic, found objects.
Cycles, 16 x 22 x 2 inch handmade paper, encaustic, found objects.

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, “Healing FromWithin XIVIII,” 62x8x8, Handmade paper, mixed media

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.

Artist’s Statement:

“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.”

The SFCC Visual Arts Gallery is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. For more information about the SFCC Visual Arts Gallery, contact Director of Art on Campus Linda Cassel via email at or call 505-428-1501.

Ave. and Dinosaur Trail Closure

Santa Fe, NM – Beginning Monday, September 11, 2023, the contractor for Santa Fe County will begin construction of a roundabout at Richards Avenue, north of the Dinosaur Trail intersection for the NE/SE Connector Project.

SANTA FE LITERARY REVIEW available for pickup

Free reading at 5 p.m. Oct. 19 in SFCC Visual Arts Gallery

Register at

Complimentary copies of the SANTA FE LITERARY REVIEW (SFLR) are available for pickup at the Santa Fe Public Library branches, the Vista Grande Public Library in Eldorado, and at the SFCC Library.

The public is invited to a free reading at the SFCC Visual Arts Gallery, from 5 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 19. Please register at

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.

The 2023 issue of the SFLR is available for viewing or download at For a selection of writing and art, visit For more information about the publication or the event, contact SFLR Faculty Advisor Kate McCahill by email at, or call 505-428-1903.

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).

He helped me, as a disabled worker, move equipment and organize it so it could be easily located. He also helped an instructor pack heavy equipment into her car when she was going to teach an off-site class all while maintaining his daily duties. His eagerness to help made the department more cost efficient as we all knew Gilbert was willing to help without complaint. If I bring something from the mail room, he will meet me at my car to help with lifting which also helps general services. The Director Janet Kerley, and the Dean Kris Swedin, all want to acknowledge Gilbert and thank him for his continued help at the HEC.”

Following the Manito Trail exhibit continues through Oct. 15

Santa Fe Community College hosted an opening reception for the traveling exhibition Following the Manito Trail from the Millicent Rogers Museum on Aug. 26. The exhibition continues in the Main Hallway through October 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.”

Banners tell the stories of many 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 or call 505-428-1501.

Executive Director of SFCC Foundation Kelly Marquez shared this opportunity to create a Free Will in a recent email:

We wouldn’t be able to strengthen this community without you. In gratitude, I’m writing to share news of our exciting new partnership that offers you a resource to complete a vital life task.

The Santa Fe Community College Foundation partnered with FreeWill: a free online estate planning tool!

This partnership comes just in time for National Make-A-Will Month, the best time of the year to create or update your will. Here are a few reasons why you might want to complete this essential task:

  • Security: Creating your will and estate plan allows you to communicate important financial and healthcare decisions, so you’re prepared for whatever the future may hold.  
  • Peace of mind: A will allows you to provide for the people and pets you love, so you know that no matter what, they will be supported. 

Make your Free Will at:

Impact: By including a legacy gift in your will, you can sustain the future of Santa Fe Community College and help secure our learning environment for the next generation!

Nearly 67% of American adults do not have an up-to-date estate plan, and it’s a crucial document that helps you care for your loved ones and steward your assets. FreeWill’s online tool guides you through writing your will in about 20 minutes — and it’s completely free to use.

As you write your will, FreeWill makes it simple to plan a legacy gift of any size to the SFCC Foundation. Your legacy gift can plant a seed of support that will grow to empower hardworking young people who are the future of our community!

Thanks for your continued support.

Enhancements to

In an email on Thursday, June 13 Executive Director of Marketing and Public Relations Todd Lovato shared the following about the public website:

Dear Colleagues,

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.

Many of the recent updates are best viewed by exploring SFCC offerings via the college’s Educational Pathways landing page.

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.

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.
