Aspirations to Achievement: Men of Color in Community Colleges (Plenary)

This session features the national release of a special report and companion DVD from the Center for Community College Student Engagement. Aspirations to Achievement: Men of Color and Community Colleges brings together data about the engagement and attainment of Latinos and Black males in community colleges. The numbers are illuminated through student voices, including a video drawn from 30 student focus groups conducted in six Achieving the Dream colleges: Austin Community College (TX), Tarrant County College (TX), Los Angeles Southwest College (TX), Los Angeles Trade Technical College (CA), Lansing Community College (MI), and Jackson Community College (MI), as well as other institutions and the Phi Theta Kappa convention. Emerging from the multi-year project are clearly urgent questions that must be addressed in every community college committed to equity in outcomes across diverse student groups. Perspectives vary on the answers to these questions. Let's listen.
