COLEGAS is comprised of Latinx professionals who, through intentional advocacy and coalition building, lead and influence transformative systemic change within the California Community College system. We seek to foster and empower Latinx professionals through mentorship, networking, and professional development to ascend and assume leadership roles at the highest influential levels to eradicate systems of oppression to provide opportunities and close the equity gap for Latinx students in higher education.
