Black Student Success Week returns April 25-29, 2022. This year’s theme, A Vision for Black Student Success: Creating a New Landscape to Succeed, will put a spotlight on new approaches to ensure Black and African American student success at California Community Colleges as we recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Now in its third year, the Board of Governors is proud to once again support Black Student Success Week in hopes that we move beyond dialogue and put our words into action,” said Pam Haynes, California Community Colleges Board of Governors President. “The Black Hour is a time we all should put a pause on our current work and spotlight the ways in which we as a system can improve support for Black students, foster Black leadership at our colleges, diversify our faculty and staff ranks, and root out systemic barriers to Black student success.”

Black Student Success Week activities will be held virtually to include daily webinars from 12:00-1:00 p.m. and group discussion forums from 1:30-2:30 p.m., as well as a virtual advocacy day on Thursday, April 28.
