Through our work with CCEAL, Palomar College gained great insight about the needs of disproportionately impacted students. Our work to gather input via surveys, focus groups and one-on-one interviews with faculty provided us the guideposts we needed to move toward tangible actions. As a result, we were able to address issues such as food insecurity, campus safety, and faculty training. Palomar is committed to equity-centered institutional effectiveness, and CCEAL has been a key partner in our equity work.
Working with CCEAL allowed the college to have quantitative and qualitative data to hear from our students on their experiences and create institutional efforts that address issues impacting our students (particularly men) of color. The information, support and development provided by CCEAL was invaluable for the college.
Our equity work at San Diego Mesa College has strong roots in our partnership with CCEAL. Our partnership shifted our campus culture to one that is guided by equity and excellence. This shift happened through the development of equity-minded practitioners, deep data dives, personalized teaching and learning opportunities, access to professional development, and practical tools and resources that intentionally support and empower minoritized students, in particular Black males. Our work has allowed us to bridge the gap between who we are and who we need to be for our students. We are better because of CCEAL.
