Southeast Campus Celebrates BTOP

Contributed by:   Olevette Payne

Members of the community gathered to celebrate the new equipment.  A brand new Macintosh desktop was also included to encourage the use and growth of multimedia at CCSF’s Southeast center.

Carmen Lamha, chair of the Computer Technology Department, was thrilled to see the fulfillment of this event. "This school has the most dedicated students and faculty. They deserve the best!"

Southeast students and community members hope to add a Multimedia program to the campus, to encourage CCSF students and residents of the district, to keep up and stay ahead of technology and social media trends to increase their chances of success.

 This is a prime example of grit and determination to succeed.

 The CCSF Southeast Center in the Bayview District, an underserved community, qualified for the BTOP grant.  The Open Lab is held every Friday 12-5pm.  This lab is open to students and non-students for academic support, teaching basic technology and online business development skills.

CCSF professor receives Robert Lax Lectureship Award at St.

Bonaventure University in New York


During March 4 through 8 Georgiou delivered the core lectures at this inaugural event focusing on the poet-sage Lax.  Henceforth "Lax Lecture Week" will be held every two years at St. Bonaventure.

Robert Lax (1915-2000) was a foundational minimalist poet and mystic. He left New York in 1964 to live on the remote Greek isle of Patmos until his death in 2000.  He was the best friend of Thomas Merton. Georgiou's serendipitous meeting with Lax in 1993 led to a seven year teacher-student relationship, a mentorship commemorated in a spiritual trilogy: The Way of the Dreamcatcher, Mystic Street, and The Isle of Monte Cristo.  The last of this series won a National Catholic Press Association award in 2011.  In addition to this trilogy, Georgiou also wrote his doctoral dissertation on Lax.

In 2012, Georgiou began teaching the first class on Robert Lax at the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley.  On April 24, 7PM, at Berkeley's Franciscan School of Theology, Georgiou will participate in "One Island," an inter-arts program celebrating the poetry of Lax that will include spoken word, music, and dance.  The program is free and open to the public.
