IE Champion Trainings

Inclusive Excellence Champion Trainings at the CCA is an initiative that has been created as a response to the College’s equity goals in the current strategic plan, as well as align with the values of the institution. This training program will support employees with increasing their knowledge, awareness, and skills regarding diversity and inclusion concepts and practices that can support and affirm the success and identities of all students. The training will consist of six 3-hour workshops and will be conducted every semester. Two tracks are offered, and employee track and a leadership track.

Employee Track

This training will provide applicable ways to incorporate Inclusive Excellence in employee roles with supporting students and creating inclusive and equitable work environments. 

Leadership Track

This track is for employees in administrative, director, or supervisory roles and incorporates strategies of how to include Inclusive Excellence concepts into leadership responsibilities. Both tracks will receive the same content and will work towards the same outcomes for each session.

Equity in Instruction Leadership Academy (ELA)

Equity in Instruction Leadership Academy (ELA) is currently offered to full-time faculty and department chairs. This is an effort housed in Academic Affairs that Council members support. The purpose of ELA is to give faculty an opportunity to explore their student completion and success equity data in a course of their choosing with their peers. This is a cohort model where 5-6 faculty spend an entire semester examining their data, exploring strategies to close their equity gaps between students of color and white students, examine their classroom tasks, norms, and culture to create more equitable outcomes and more inclusive classrooms. This is offered during both semesters and we are entering our fourth semester of this Academy.
