ABOUT THE SUPPORTING MEN OF COLOR CERTIFICATE
The Center for Organizational Responsibility and Advancement (CORA) has gained widespread attention for its Teaching Men of Color Certificate Program. They now offer an online training program designed to enhance the capacity of classified professionals, counselors and administrators to support the success of Men of Color.
Weekly assignments include participating in 1 hour-long online modules, reading 1 book chapter, 2-4 articles per module, & online posts. Additionally, you'll will be required to attend at least 1 live online session date within 30 days of beginning the course (dates will be provided upon being accepted to the course).
WHEN YOU ARE READY TO BEGIN THE COURSE, go online and create your CORA account (please make sure to use your SMC email). Your 30 days to complete the course begins when your CORA account is confirmed (extensions can be provided). Below are the steps to begin the course:
