Folsom Lake College Presents 2018-2019 Annual Report to the Community
November 12, 2019
Folsom Lake College (FLC) has released its 2018-2019 Annual Report, “Transforming Lives through Quality Education,” which encapsulates the work of the college, the FLC Office of Philanthropy, and the Harris Center for the Arts for the academic year of July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2019.
The report highlights the accomplishments and achievements of Folsom Lake College’s diverse body of students, faculty, and staff. “As a twenty-nine year veteran with the Los Rios Community College District, I have seen this college grow from a seedling of an idea into the well-respected institution it is today,” said college president Whitney Yamamura. “Now, as I enter my third academic year serving this institution, I have an even deeper understanding of what a special place this is.”
Report highlights include:
- The completion of the college’s updated Facilities Master Plan, which will provide a solid foundation for addressing the long-term facility needs of the college’s three campus locations: the main Folsom campus, the El Dorado Center in Placerville, and the Rancho Cordova Center. The next scheduled construction project will be a new science building on the main campus.
- The expansion of the college’s inmate education program, which offers college courses and certificate programs in partnership with Mule Creek State Prison, Folsom State Prison, and Folsom Women’s Facility. Over 750 under-served incarcerated students have participated, which has removed over 2,600 hours from sentences at an estimated savings of $2.5 million to taxpayers.
- The Harris Center for the Arts, the regional visual and performing arts center located on the college’s main campus, reached a momentous milestone of its one millionth ticket sold, in the midst of a season that saw 452 events welcoming 185,000 patrons and topping $7.5 million in ticket sales. In addition, 7,500 local K-12 students were served by the ClassACTS! school matinee series.
- Over $800,000 was graciously donated to the college and the Harris Center for the Arts via the Los Rios Colleges Foundation for philanthropic initiatives including student scholarships, the Rancho Cordova Promise Program, the Innovation Center makerspace, veterans programs, intercollegiate athletics, and the arts.
