1. Debate Team Success and Symposium: The CCSF Forensics team just returned from another successful weekend of tournaments where we won armfuls of trophies, facing some of the toughest competition of the year in Los Angeles. Read the list of trophies here

Also, this Wednesday the Forensics team, in association with the Black Student Union, will put on a symposium about Ferguson. Our goal is to first provide information about the specifics of the Michael Brown shooting and the grand jury's decision to not indict the officer involved and second, to put the case of Michael Brown into the broader context of race and racism in America. This is a sensitive, complex, and important subject. The more recent recorded homicide of Eric Garner has supercharged the subject. On Wednesday, our symposium will orient students in finding productive ways to contribute to the ongoing conversation. This Symposium on Race and Ferguson will take place at 5pm in Visual Arts 115 on Wednesday (12/10). Please see attached flyer. Submitted by Nathan Feingersh-Steele.

4. Congratulations Elaine Johnson: Elaine Johnson, executive director of BioLink, the National Science Foundation supported Center for Advanced Technology Education in Biotechnology, headquartered at CCSF, has been recently recognized as a Fellow of The American Association for the Advancement of Science for her extraordinary leadership, understanding, and successes as the Executive Director of BioLink.

As BioLink is headquartered at City College of San Francisco, this award also brings national accolades to the City College of San Francisco, as well as Elaine.

Please see the award announcement online with its short background on the Fellow recognition, and then scroll down about 3-4 pages to the Section on Education, to see Elaine's (and City College of San Francisco) listing.  Please note that very few members of community and technical colleges world-wide have been so honored and recognized in the past.

This is an exceptional honor for Community Colleges across the nation, and in particular, for Elaine and CCSF. Congratulations! Submitted by Kristin Charles.
