Our Faculty

One of the first words often used to describe the SCE is “community.” It’s our mission to support you through every step of your journey. That support is evident in the classroom, where our faculty understand the challenges of being an adult learner. These teachers — a mix of full-time PC faculty and industry professionals — are collaborators, inspiring educators, and student advocates.

Our Students

SCE students come from all walks of life. We know. Our students are parents who are going back to school, professionals looking to advance within their current company, and military members. Just like you, they faced obstacles when they decided to go back to school. And just like you, they’re overcoming those obstacles.
