We are pleased to announce this year’s Black Student Success Week is April 26-30, 2021. Black Student Success Week will share research insights and innovative approaches for improving student success among Black and African American students at California Community Colleges.

Daily webinars will be held throughout the week from 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. We invite you to save the date for these daily webinars called The Black Hour, where we will engage in discussions exploring this year’s theme Follow the Money: Unapologetically Supporting Black Students.

The week will also include a virtual advocacy day on Thursday, April 29th. We encourage community college leadership to meet with state legislators via video conferencing to advocate for further funding and support for Black student success. Additional materials and talking points will be provided to support administrators and students meeting with their representatives.

This week is organized in collaboration with the following partners: A2MEND, Umoja Community, the Campaign for College Opportunity, The Education Trust-West, the Equity Avengers, the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges, the Community College League of California and the California Community Colleges Chancellor's Office.
