SAN FRANCISCO, CA – At the June 22, 2023, regular meeting of the Governing Board of the San Francisco Community College District, City College trustees took unanimous action to include an asterisk notation in the 2023-24 academic year college catalog addendum to express their support for the development of a 16-unit credit Certificate of Achievement in Cantonese. City College would like to reaffirm its commitment to meet the direction of the Board and work towards including this 16-unit credit certificate in the 2024-25 academic year college catalog.
