History

SAC had many Japanese American students through the early 1940s, and as part of the "California Nisei College Diploma Project, SAC is currently seeking information about its Japanese Americans students who were forced to interrupt their studies during World War II, when many of them were forced to enter internment camps. These students or their families will receive honorary diplomas at the SAC 2011 spring commencement.
