AFFIRM Learning Community


AFFIRM is a program designed to increase the retention and transfer rate for students of African descent, as well as other students of diverse ancestries to four-year college and universities. Emphasis is placed on the General Educational Curriculum: History, English, Science, Language, Visual and Performing Arts, and core discipline requirements. By using the Student Success and Support Program services, students will have access to counseling services, orientation, assessment, advising, and other educational planning.

The AFFIRM program seeks to educate our students through intentional and direct scholastic programming. In addition, we expose our scholars to educational events and university programs, including cultural events, leadership opportunities, and more. An essential component to the success of the AFFIRM Program is the collaboration between students, parents, and community members, as well as the dedicated faculty and staff of San Joaquin Delta Community College.
