The mission of METAS is to serve and empower
first-generation, immigrant, students of color, and students from marginalized
communities through an education that is rigorous, supportive, and just. We,
the METAS staff, believe that each one of our students is agents of social
change who, with the right support, will thrive as leaders, academics, research
scholars and global citizens.
To achieve our mission, Metas coordinates
innovative instructional and support services available to all student on
campus. This is made possible through collaboration with programs and
departments across the SJCC campus and across institutions of higher education
and public high schools. Together, we aim to increase retention, successful
course completion, and persistence towards completion of a certificate,
associate degrees, or university transfer requirements while disrupting the
barriers that attempt to diminish our students’ educational and career
We encourage you to visit the Metas Center in the
Multi-Disciplinary Building. Here, students have a welcoming and friendly
learning environment. Our services include:
