Many college students do not have access to affordable, nutritious food, stable housing, and other basic needs – impacting their academic success.  Pauline Swartz, Koji Uesugi and Eric Lara from Mt. SAC’s Homelessness and Basic Resources Committee and Student Equity team provide an excellent overview of the issue, including surprising resources we can start sharing immediately with students in need. We also hear from two Mt. SAC alums, Rikiesha Pierce and Michael DeCarbo, who remind us that – despite immediate challenges - every student’s potential is limitless.
