The California Community Colleges is one of six higher education systems nationwide to join the Racial Equity for Adult Credentials in Higher Ed (REACH) Collaborative. This initiative aims to increase attainment of high-value non-degree credentials and associate degrees in community colleges by adult learners of color (age 25+), particularly Black and African American, Latinx and Indigenous learners. This community provides a space where the 20 participating REACH college teams can connect and engage with each other, share ideas and best practices, and access resources to optimize their Guided Pathways efforts for adult learners of color. Professionals interested in this work can also join to access resources. Join today.
