Leaders prepare for RLC to attend Men of Color summit

Institutional Effectiveness — On Oct. 7, Tony Summers, vice president for student development, submitted Richland College’s Cohort Data Review in preparation for the Richland College team’s attendance at the Kresge Foundation Student Success Institute: Men of Color in Community Colleges in November, hosted by the Center for Community College Student Engagement (CCSSE). To complete the pre-work, Dr. Summers led members of the cross-functional team in review of fall 2008 first-time-in-college data and CCSSE data with special attention to males and under-served student populations. Participation in the institute will help to sharpen the focus of Richland College’s Male Initiative program.
