The National Community College Hispanic Council presents…

Lessons in Leadership- Latina(o) Best Practices in Meeting the COVID19 Challenge

8/20/2020, 10 -11:15 AM PACIFIC TIME – Zoom Webinar Presentation

The NCCHC Board and staff are excited about this virtual series that will provide our members and administrators across the country with the leadership information for which NCCHC is known.  

Our first webinar will include presenters from Maricopa County Community College District, AZ, Bronx Community College of the City University of New York, NY, Dallas College, TX, and College of Southern Nevada, NV

Leadership development is a major issue across the nation in all sectors of our economy especially given the challenges presented by COVID 19. By addressing the on‐going issues facing so many of our up and coming Hispanic professionals, our series will aim to explore all aspects of adapting, re‐tooling and reorganizing operations and instruction on college campuses. We will also explore student specific challenges as our series topics progress as that too is a core mission of NCCHC. We advocate for Hispanic students, equal opportunity and accessibility in higher education, specifically at the community college level.

Registration is just $30 for members and $50 for non-members. Pre-registration is required and the deadline to hold your space is August 18, 2020.

NCCHC helps to provide the leadership which will be critical for us to meet the challenges we face during and after this pandemic. 


California community colleges are critical for Latinx student access, who represent more than 46% of its overall student population. The future economic vitality of our state is inextricably linked to the success of Latinx students and their opportunity to earn family sustaining wages. Supporting their continued success in pursuit of a higher education must remain a priority. This webinar series will include strategic conversations on the continued investments and targeted support needed for Latinx students, with specific attention to how research and policy can inform our practice and actions.
