Etc. + IDTV: What if City College Closed?

This semester Etc. Magazine and IDTV teamed up to create a super multimedia team! We put together a number of projects. Namely four long form packages on the challenges City College has faced over the past year. In this report I interview Tannis Reinhertz, the Department Chair of Culinary Arts. Gregory Keech, the Department Chair of English as a Second Language. Sam Mogannam, City College Alumni and owner of Bi Rite in San Francisco’s Mission District, and Lupita Gama, a City College ESL student.

I spoke with them about how City College has changed their lives for the better, what this school means to them, and what would happen if City College shut it’s doors for good.

Sherae Reports: The Accreditation Report


Since March of 2012 City College of San Francisco has been fighting for it’s life… otherwise known as it’s accreditation. Without accreditation student’s credit’s would not transfer and would essentially be forced to close as we know it. What has been happing with City College since they were put on “show cause” status from the ACCJC in 2012? Please check out the most recent episode of Sherae Reports where I break down the past year, why this is occurring, and what could happen in the future.

Thank you to Howard Beck, Pat Uland, and Michael Roccaforte for their help with this project. Thank you to Alissa Messer, Larry Kamer, John Rizzo, Shanelle Williams, Wendy Kaufmyn, Madeline Muller for their time and words. Thank you to Francine Podenski for your continued guidance and support.
