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.
No matter who you are or where you are on life's journey, we have dedicated educators ready to serve you. Take classes in your neighborhood, near your work, at a local community college. Collectively we teach over 50,000 adults, students just like you: ready, willing, and able. Adult Education in your back yard!
Classes available in your neighborhood at our local Adult Schools and Community Colleges. Say ”Yes!” To you and contact a counselor now.
We create educational opportunities to help students transition between adult schools and community colleges and/or between school and work with the goal of becoming a regional hub of opportunities for personal, professional and economic advancement through robust partnerships.
