The North Santa Clara county Consortium was established in 2015. The Leadership Board (comprised of representatives from DeAnza College, Foothill College, Fremont Union High School District Adult School, Mountain View-Los Altos Adult School and Palo Alto Adult School) is created for the purpose of collaborating and improving the success of adult learners in the region. Specifically, the Board seeks to implement an annual consortium action plan, revising as needed based on the needs of the community of learners. The specific purposes of the Committee may include the following responsibilities:
As a consortium, we believe in equity for all. We believe in changing structures and systems so that institutional practices are inclusive, supportive, and tailored to each student’s needs. That said, institutional racism exists and it affects many in our community and disproportionately impacts our Black community members, often devastatingly so. Here are some resources for teachers and students in this challenging time throughout our nation. We can all be better, and we all can fight racism. And, we all can join our brothers and sisters in the Black community and stand up and make known that Black Lives Matter. These resources are meant to inform and help you tailor your own growth and exponentially empower your voice for change.
