Essex County College and the FOCUS Hispanic Center for Community Development held a student orientation for extension center students on November 22. The purpose of the event was two-fold:
- to raise the awareness of the academic, career and student support services available to extension center students; and
- to raise the awareness of the pivotal role the extension center plays in terms of community outreach to the academic division chairpersons and staff.
Opening remarks were given by Casto Maldonado, President and CEO of FOCUS; Dr. Stephanie Steplight-Johnson, Dean of Liberal Arts; and Carlos Rivera, Acting Dean of Business, Industry and Government.
