Sac State shares importance of education at Super Sunday

Nelsen at Super SundaySacramento State representatives fanned out to churches in predominantly African American communities on Feb. 28 as part of the California State University’s Super Sunday outreach, promoting the benefits of higher education.

President Robert S. Nelsen, joining in his first Super Sunday, attended the service at St. Paul Missionary Baptist Church, while Interim Provost Ming-Tung “Mike” Lee visited Antioch Progressive Church, and Student Affairs Vice President Edward Mills attended the service at the Center of Praise Ministries. Other churches participated by watching a video featuring Nelsen.

“We’re seeing the number of African American students increase at our university,” Nelsen told the St. Paul congregation. “We are the seventh most diverse university west of the Mississippi. Sac State is dedicated to you and your community, and to this city. And what I promise you is that Sac State will be the most inclusive university, where your students will feel at home like they feel at home here, in your home, today.”

After each service, representatives of Sac State’s Admissions and Outreach, Financial Aid and Scholarships, and other campus offices offered information and answered questions from prospective students and their families.
