Tahirah Simpson, Guided Pathways Task Force Faculty Leader at SBVC, was one of 30 guest speakers selected to participate in CSUSB’s inaugural event “Essential Conversations: African American Men” this spring. Simpson joined the conversation to address diversity, equity, and inclusion in the college sphere, and how instructors should continue to emphasize these initiatives beyond receiving tenure with their campuses. The event aimed to highlight racial inequalities Black men face in academics, the workforce, everyday life, and how people of color have been disproportionately affected by COVID-19 in various communities across California.

SBVC Psychiatric Technology graduate Tolani Oladosuu

A very special cohort of Psych Tech students graduated on August 6. These 20 students were the first to make it entirely through the COVID-19 pandemic, wearing surgical masks and face shields and going through daily or weekly COVID-19 testing. These students were up to the challenge, as they navigated a new world of virtual and recorded lectures and online study groups and meetings.

The cohort went to Canyon Springs Community Facility, Del Rosa Villa Post Acute, Waterman Canyon Post-Acute, and San Gorgonio Memorial Hospital; worked with virtual special needs classrooms at Cajon and Pacific High Schools; and went to Patton State Hospital while several units were under quarantine. They did their clinical rotations on site, as SBVC was able to find locations that could accommodate all of the students.


Founded in 1926, San Bernardino Valley College (SBVC) is a comprehensive community college offering hundreds of degree programs, on campus and online.
