1. EVENT: Free Spring Jazz Concert - Tuesday, May 10

Tuesday, May 10
Ocean Campus, Diego Rivera Theatre
CCSF The Jazz/Rock Workshop & Advanced Jazz Band under the direction of David Hardiman, Jr., with David Hardiman, Sr., M.C., present guest artist Roger Glenn. Second-generation Jazz Master Roger Glenn plays sax, flute, vibes, clarinet, oboe and many Latin hand-percussion instruments, performing with Jazz greats from Dizzy Gillespie, Cal Tjader & Herbie Mann to Pete Escovedo, Taj Mahal & Kurt Elling; for special performances for President Carter, at Montreaux, and other venues worldwide.

2. EVENT: Graduation Celebration: Latin American and Latino/a Studies, Interdisciplinary Studies, and Women's Studies - May 11

On Wednesday evening, May 11, the Latin American and Latino/a Studies, Interdisciplinary Studies, and Women’s Studies departments will hold a joint Graduation Celebration in Visual Arts 115. We will recognize AA degree, scholarship and certificate earners in our departments.

After the celebration, we’ll screen the documentary film "Mariela Castro’s March: Cuba’s LGBT Revolution" – conceived and produced by Saul Landau.

Please join us to celebrate the successes of our students and engage in our communities’ ongoing struggles for social justice!

6:00 – 6:30PM    Reception
6:30 – 7:45PM    Honoring the AA degree  and certificate completers
8:00 – 9:00 PM   Mariela Castro’s March: Cuba’s LGBT Revolution, introduced by Grammy Award nominee, CCSF instructor Greg Landau, and followed by a discussion led by LALS chair Edgar Torres

The film’s director Jon Alpert spent 3 years making "Mariela Castro’s March," which was dedicated to filmmaker Saul Landau who had the initial idea for the documentary. It follows Mariela Castro (often with husband Juan by her side) in her quest to lead the LGBT movement in present-day Cuba. Throughout her travels in central and rural Cuba, crowds scream her name and cheer her on – not because she is the daughter of Raúl and niece of Fidel – but because of her tireless support of LGBT issues and equal rights. Ms. Castro was the first ever member of Cuba’s Parliament to vote “no” on an equal rights initiative because it did little to support those with HIV or gender identity issues.

3. Tribute to Former CCSF President Dr. Willis F. Kirk - May 15

Sunday, May 15
Ocean Campus, Diego Rivera Theatre 
Please join us in a tribute to Dr. Willis F. Kirk on Sunday, May 15th from 2:00pm-5:00pm in the Diego Rivera Theater.

Dr. Kirk was a world renowned legendary jazz educator, musician, jazz drummer, poet, and composer/arranger. He taught instrumental music in Indianapolis and Oakland Schools and went on to serve on the administration at City College of San Francisco where he retired as President Emeritus. He received his Doctor in Education Administration from Walden University, as well as a Masters Degree and honorary Doctor of Arts Degree from his alma mater, Butler University, in Indianapolis, Indiana.
He performed in early bands with jazz greats ‘Duke’ Ellington, Earl ‘Fatha’ Hines, Lionel Hampton, Tony Bennett, Charlie Parker, Wes, Buddy, and Monk Montgomery (seen in the movie with Thelonious Monk “Round Midnight”),  J.J. Johnson, Slide Hampton, and Jimmie Coe; co-led the Eldridge Morrison Big Band; co-founded the David Hardiman San Francisco All Star Big Band and recorded on “It’ll Be All Right,” David Hardiman’s SF All Star Big Band “37th Anniversary,” “Portrait of David Hardiman,” and David Hardiman’s "Music Around the World” (CD Baby Music Store). Dr. Kirk also played with the African American Jazz Caucus Dance Band where he served on the Board of Directors.

Tuesday, May 19
Reception at 6:00pm
Festival at 7:00pm - 9:00pm
Diego Rivera Theater

The students, faculty and staff of the Cinema Department at City College of San Francisco announce the 16th Annual City Shorts Student Film Festival.

City Shorts stands out as one of most unique film festivals in the Bay Area. The festival is programmed, designed and executed by students enrolled in the Film Exhibition class and brings in a standing room only audience to the college’s 200 seat Historic Diego River Theater.

Experience the spirit of truly independent filmmaking. The City College of San Francisco’s Cinema Department nurtures talented filmmakers from the ground up, with a curriculum that rigorously covers theory to advanced cinematography, directing, editing, sound design and VFX.

The culmination of CINE 40 (a hands on film exhibition class) is clearly displayed as the students organize everything from the call for entries and creation of festival poster and collateral materials, prescreen and help select the best of the works submitted to this highly competitive competition, run tech, prepare show reels, fundraise and event plan. Students are supported in their efforts by noted members of the local film community, who come in to help jury the finalists.

We are pleased to announce this years jurors include City College Cinema Department faculty Mike Shannon, John Carlson and Anna Geyer in collaboration with film community luminaries Jesse Hawthorne Ficks (Organizer/host of Midnites for Maniacs and film critic) and Lu Ramirez (Cine+Mas SF Founder).

The Associated Student Council and Student Trustee Elections will take place on Wednesday, May 11 and Thursday, May 12 at various locations across the District. Please visit the elections webpage for candidate information, polling times, and polling locations for each Campus/Center. Students will need a picture ID in order to vote. 

8. Food Service Closure Dates

The last day of food service for the Cafeteria and the Chef's Table will be Monday, May 16. The last day of food service for the Educated Palate will be Wednesday, May 18.

9. Real Estate Program's Career Night Hit a New Record in Attendance 

The Real Estate Program sponsors a Career Night every semester featuring 12-15 professionals from the real estate, escrow, title, mortgage brokering, home inspection, property management, and commercial professional fields. This year the Business Department hosted a faculty member from the Copenhagen Business Academy, Denmark, seeking real estate students interested in studying abroad. CPH Business educates and trains the greatest number of real estate agents practicing real estate in their country.
This year’s Career Night hit an all-time high for attendance. 117 students crowded into MUB140 on Monday, April 25 for the two hour evening event. Panelists described opportunities for employment in their field. Interested students then had an opportunity to “speed date” and press their resumes into prospective employers' hands. Many students had their “elevator speeches” down pat. With or without a real estate agent license, our CCSF real estate students are launched in a very rewarding vocation. Watch them shine this summer!

10. Another Sold Out Splendid Scholarship Dinner

300 guests attended the 2016 Asian Coalition Scholarship Dinner on May 6. The festive evening was a collegial occasion for trustees, faculty, classified, students, administrators and guests to mingle and share a gourmet dinner. Dinner sponsors included AFT 2121, APASS, Faculty Association, Karen Saginor, Carl Jew, Jill Yee, Dana Jae LaBreque, Chinatown Center Kit Dai, and Chinatown-North Beach Student Council. 

Karen Saginor received the Leadership of Excellence Award and she encouraged her fellow colleagues to participate in CCSF and accreditation activities. Her leadership message is, "There is so much leadership work that can be done by people like us who have doubts and don’t really know very much, but we want to find out. City College is the place to do this".
Outstanding faculty award went to Kitty Moriwaki for her years of professional and valuable services in Matriculation. Elsie Lee was honored with the Outstanding Classified Award for her years of dedication to the CNB Center and the ESL Department. Eight retirees present were also recognized. We thank Steve Brown, Chair of the Department Environmental Horticulture and Floristry, for the gorgeous floral arrangements. Great wine for the evening was donated by Dr. Geisce Ly and Dr. Minh Hoa Ta.

The highlight of the evening was the Scholarship Award Ceremony, during which 29 students received $500-$1,000 awards from the Asian Coalition, and 3 students won APASS scholarships. We thank the generous donors from the community, faculty, staff and dinner for their contributions and participation.

Photos of the evening were taken by Edward Tang and are available here. We hope to see you at the 2017 Dinner.
