Online Course Now Available for all SMC Classified and Administrators:

Supporting Men of Color 

in the Community College

Drs. Frank Harris III & J. Luke Wood 


Participate in this online course, designed specifically for classified and administrators.

Dear classified and administrators:

This has been a difficult time for each of us, but we’re in this together. SMC is grappling with our new reality and how we temporarily provide services remotely. As a College, we are asking how we can best show up for our students now and in the future.
 
Something is clear: we come together for our students. Whether you’re working remotely or at the campus, this may be an opportune time to participate in online professional development that is essential to the College’s equity work: Supporting Men of Color in the Community College course. The course takes approximately 16 hours and could be done on campus or off campus. Those who complete the program will also earn a certificate. Talk to your supervisor before signing up to make sure this is the best time to take the course – we will be offering it through December.
 
Looking forward to continuing our equity work,
Edna
