Welcome to METAS
The mission of METAS is to serve and empower all our students through an education that is rigorous, supportive, and just. We, the METAS staff, believe that each one of our students is an agent of social change who, with the right support, will thrive as leaders, academics, research scholars, and global citizens.
To achieve our mission, METAS coordinates innovative instructional and support services available to all students on campus. This is made possible through collaboration with programs and departments across the SJCC campus and across institutions of higher education and public high schools.
Together, we aim to increase retention, successful course completion, and persistence towards completing a certificate, associate degrees, or university transfer requirements while disrupting the barriers that attempt to diminish our students’ educational and career aspirations.
The SJCC METAS Program was established through a U.S. Department of Education Title V grant and is open to all San Jose City College students.
The Developing Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSI) Program (referred to as Title V: HSI) assists eligible Hispanic-serving higher education institutions to expand their capacity to serve Hispanic and low-income students.
METAS counselors, Sabrina and Yesenia, are here to support you meet your academic
and personal goals.
