By ONME Newswire

SACRAMENTO, CA – Black Student Success Week returns April 25-29, 2022, inviting administrators, faculty, staff, and students from across the California Community College system to examine the resources and programs that support Black student success. This year’s theme is A Vision for Black Student Success: Creating a New Landscape to Succeed. The 2022 Black Student Success Week will focus on new approaches to ensure Black and African American students succeed at California Community Colleges as we recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. The week will kick off with remarks from U.S. Secretary of Education Dr. Miguel Cardona.

“We can't lose this moment, this chance for a reset in education by going back to the same pre[1]pandemic strategies that did not address inequities for our students of color. Almost two-thirds of Black undergraduates attend a California community college. It’s critical that we continue to support them, especially through the pandemic and as we continue to look toward recovery. This week presents an opportunity for us to discuss how we address the inequities that have existed in our education systems for far too long and create sustainable solutions to keep our students in the classroom and ensure they graduate,” said U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona.
