About the Series

Dr. Regina Stanback Stroud and her consultants will lead Mt. SAC employees through a dynamic Equity Literacy & Leadership Academy (ELLA) tailored for three audiences – Classified Professionals, the Administrative Leadership Team and Faculty. They will facilitate a series of virtual workshops designed to enhance racial literacy, cultivate equity leadership, enhance communication, and cultivate cultural responsiveness in the classroom. 

Credit: Pending 20 hours of PGI for faculty and PGB for Classified/Confidential Staff.
* Although a certificate will be issued for full completion of the program, it is not a CEU equivalent towards teaching at Mt. SAC.
