eLumen, the leading provider of software and services built to power student learning and success, announced today that Solano Community College (SCC) has selected eLumen to provide an integrated solution to help the college with accreditation, curriculum and catalog, student learning outcomes, and program review and planning. eLumen was SCC’s choice thanks to its seamless integration, consistent interface, and easy data interchange and exchange, allowing the college to address emerging needs for Guided Pathways and the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office Vision for Success while eliminating inefficiencies resulting from non-integrated systems.
Solano Community College had been laboring through manual processes and disparate systems to manage program review, the college catalog, and curriculum. This made it difficult to implement effective college planning as integrating data from various platforms was cumbersome and ineffective.
Dr. David Williams, SCC’s Vice President of Academic Affairs, explained why eLumen was their choice for student and institutional success by stating, “Our process for assessing student learning was complicated, and our catalog development process was manual, slow, and susceptible to errors. While there are many options out there for each of these processes, eLumen was the only solution that was easy to use and integrated all of the data.”
The college looks forward to an integrated workflow process with eLumen’s platform, saving time and resources so that more focus can be spent on making informed decisions on program improvements and student programs. “There are so many good things happening at Solano College right now,” says Dr. Williams. “With our increased focus on student equity and Guided Pathways for student success, eLumen will give us the tools we need to be even more effective.” Academic Senate President Dr. LaNae Jaimez agrees: “We were looking for a platform that would be easy for faculty to use and still meaningful for students, so that we could focus on the real goal of continually improving our courses and programs. eLumen will help us do that.”
ABOUT SOLANO COMMUNITY COLLEGE
Solano Community College is a tradition in Solano County. Established in 1945 as Vallejo Junior College, Solano was part of the Vallejo Unified School District until 1967 when the College became a countywide institution. The 192-acre campus, centrally located just off Interstate 80, was completed in 1971. Solano College is part of California’s public community college system of 114 campuses in 72 districts across the state. The College’s service area encompasses the communities of Benicia, Dixon, Fairfield, Suisun, Vacaville, Vallejo and Winters, as well as Travis Air Force Base. Many graduates of the area’s fifteen public high schools and three private schools take advantage of the educational opportunities offered by Solano Community College.
