GCC Gender Equity Center Events Raise Awareness about Domestic Violence
October 3, 2019
Activities aimed to raise awareness about the problem of domestic violence are taking place throughout the month of October at Gateway Community College (GCC).
October is Domestic Violence Awareness month and GCC’s Gender Equity Center is providing educational opportunities so that students can learn how to support survivors of domestic violence and be a part of the solution to this societal problem. Students are invited to drop in at the Gender Equity Center, Room N110, and pick up a purple ribbon to wear as a show of support for the cause and join in any of the programs.

Corporate sponsorships are fueling record growth in Gateway Community College’s automotive program.
Daniel Fuller, professor and department chair of automotive technology at GCC, said that enrollment is up 12 percent this year and shot up 80 percent in the last 5 years. He noted that enrollment increases are driven primarily by growth in corporate-sponsored programs, including the General Motors Automotive Service Education Program (GM ASEP) and American Honda Professional Automotive Career Training (PACT), which lead to an Associate Degree in Applied Sciences.
