Chris Vitelli, President of Merced College gave an update on programs and services that are happening at Merced College. Vitelli opened with statistics of Merced College students.  A large portion (70%) of students attending Merced College are on financial aid and 60% of Merced College students are Latino.  Merced College has been putting effort into student equity, which ensures all students have a chance to succeed.

Merced College has created a Career Technical Education (CTE) fast track in which students can finish their degree or certification in 1-2 semesters for trades such as Mechanical Design, Computer Networking, Automotive Technology, Diesel Equipment Technology, Welding Technology, Mechanized Agriculture and Industrial Electrical Technician.

The Gallo family, in honor of their brother First Lieutenant Peter Joseph Gallo funded a Veterans Resource Center through a $90,000 one-time private fund donation. The facility now provides an area on campus where Veterans feel welcome, can study, use computers and enjoy a quiet room.  Through a $1.5 million dollar grant, a Literacy Center was opened at Merced College.  The center includes peer mentors, instructional support and assists students with completion of college level english courses.
