City College of San Francisco (CCSF) is one of the largest and most diverse community colleges in the world, with more than 106,000 students, 4,700 courses, 9 neighborhood campuses and more than 150 other instructional sites citywide. Its programmatic breadth and variety, combined with its image and prominence in ethnic neighborhoods and business districts, result in the highest market penetration of any community college in the country, and more than one-third of CCSF students are from underrepresented minority populations. At $20 per unit in-state tuition, CCSF is San Francisco's best higher education value. City College of San Francisco

The Institute for Convergence of Optical and Network Systems (ICONS) was a very successful, grant funded effort by the CNIT Department to develop technician training in converged network technologies, which are at the leading edge of communications technology trends. ICONS was funded by a $750,000, 3-year grant from the National Science Foundation as an Advanced Technological Education (ATE) Project from 10/05 through 9/08. ICONS has now ceased operations, replaced by the Mid-Pacific Information and Communications Technology (MPICT) Center ( www.mpict.org ), which endeavors to coordinate, promote and improve the quality and availability of ICT education in a region consisting of Northern California, Northern Nevada, Southern Oregon, Hawaii and the Pacific Territories.
