Dear Leaders, Advisors and Friends,
During these unprecedented and uncertain times we are currently facing your email, like ours, must be flooded with worthy requests to assist those in need. As time goes by, the needs become more urgent for those who are struggling with their burdens. Too many students at San Diego Continuing Education (SDCE) are living in crisis and need our help. Today we are asking you to come together during this difficult time to support our students.
You may have heard that in response to the COVID-19 crisis, SDCE has transitioned all instruction and student services to alternative remote methods. Our faculty and staff have made heroic efforts to help our students continue to meet their educational goals.
Changes in the economy and the transition to online instruction put a heavy burden on our students that could potentially be a reason for them to discontinue their education.
- Students now face greater challenges like:
- Lack of computers/inadequate technology
- No access to internet
- Loss of wages
- Increasing food and housing insecurity
To help our students to finish the semester, earn their certificates, transfer to college and transition to careers--we are offering immediate emergency assistance to students who are most heavily impacted by this crisis. We need your help today to ensure the greatest number of students possible can stay in college.
We are inviting you to provide a lifeline to the single mom who lost her childcare job or the Gateway student who faithfully uses a computer lab to complete his assignments and now is trying to study on his phone.
Every dollar counts. Our students need our help now more than ever.
Please consider making a contribution today because every donation--even the smallest amount--will help us reach our goal to help as many students as possible. Thank you!
Wishing you and your loved ones good health and uplifted spirits,
Carlos Cortez. Ph.D.
