A Look Back in History: City College Southeast Campus in 1999

The SFPUC’s Southeast Community Facility (SECF) at 1800 Oakdale partners with education partners, community-based organizations and direct service agencies that provide resources to the Bayview Hunters Point community. Southeast Community Facility tenants offer Bayview Hunters Point youth and adults access to a wide range of education, workforce development, environmental training and career placement opportunities.

Since its founding in 1935, City College of San Francisco (CCSF) has evolved into a multicultural, multi-campus community college that is one of the largest in the country. CCSF has 11-campuses and offers courses in more than 50 academic programs and over 100 occupational disciplines. There is a full range of credit courses leading to the Associate of Arts and Science degrees, most of which meet the general education requirements for transfer to a four-year colleges and universities. 

CCSF established its Southeast Center, formerly ‘the Southeast Campus,’ at the SECF in 1986 as an outgrowth of the San Francisco Community College District’s former Skills Center, which primarily offered vocational training classes.

Dr. Veronica Hunnicutt, Dean of the Southeast Campus of CCSF, submitted photos from April 1999. Ms. Hunnicutt shared photos of her with City College staff at the time, along with some community members during performances.
