SCC Biomanufacturing Baccalaureate Approved

You can now earn your four-year degree at Solano Community College!

Courses begin Fall, 2017 (Enrollment begins Spring, 2017)

Biomanufacturing means growing living cells (bacterial, yeast, and animal cells) in large tanks called bioreactors and inducing them to produce a protein that serves as a medicine.Biomanufacturing at SCC, picture of bioreactor. That protein then must be separated from other cellular components and purified by using techniques that exploit its properties to isolate it away from other cellular proteins. Then technicians use analytical techniques to prove the purity of the isolated protein. In the future Biomanufacturing will be expanded to include the industrial production of biofuels, biomaterials, stem cells, and other products currently manufactured using chemical rather than biological techniques. Solano Community College is exploring the addition of these elements to its program.

This table represents the sequence of course offerings for the first cohort that will begin the degree program in Fall 2017. Currently each course is actively being taken through the Solano College Academic Senate’s curriculum approval process. Equipment has been purchased for the laboratory courses and faculty are designing the laboratory learning modules.

Creating Bowls to Fill, SCC helps Solano Food Banks

Five SCC staff and faculty members put their talents to work recently and created 100 pottery bowls to be used in the upcoming Empty Bowls fundraisers. Kathy Kearns, Rod Guyer, John Lloyd, Marc Lancet, and Tri Tran got behind the wheels and made bowls that will be used to serve soup at the Fairfield Food Bank Warehouse on Oct. 15 and the Concord Food Bank Warehouse on Oct. 16. When the soup is finished, attendees can even keep the bowls.

Besides the meal of soup and bread, the program will include information about Food Bank efforts and a raffle. Both events will be held from 4-6 p.m.

Very Low Crime Rate at SCC

The crime rate at Solano Community College continues to be extremely low, according to the 2016 Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act. In his introduction to the report, Lieutenant Brian Travis, Service Area Manager of the Solano County Sheriff’s Office, stressed the importance of maintaining a safe campus.

“Throughout 2016, Solano Community College continued to strive for academic excellence in education,” Travis wrote in his introduction to the report. “Safety remains an integral part in reaching our milestones in the first 71 years and continues to be an integral part of our continued success as we move forward.” SCC contracts with the Solano County Sheriff’s Office to provide law enforcement for its campuses.

The newest Clery report provides detailed crime statistics, as well as policies and procedures for handling various situations on campus. The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act is a federal law that requires colleges and universities to disclose certain timely and annual information about campus crime and security policies. All public and private post- secondary educational institutions participating in federal student aid programs are required to comply with it.
