Vice President of Student Services Dr. Tina King has been chosen to serve on the USC Race & Equity Center’s Racial Equity in Guided Pathways Commission.
The College Futures Foundation recently awarded the USC Race and Equity Center a $1 million grant to advance racial equity across California community colleges. The commission brings together leaders throughout California to bring a racial equity focus to Guided Pathways.
“I am excited to be a part of this critical work to strengthen and support the Guided Pathways framework,” Dr. King said. “My hope is that the committee will identify tools that continue advancing anti-racism and guided pathways for all community college educators to utilize.”
Over the next two years, the commission will reimagine how to meet the specific needs of community college students of color. The USC Race and Equity Center said the commission will “help accelerate our relentless, ambitious, and strategic pursuit of racial equity.”
Dr. King joins a 30-member commission that includes students, faculty, counselors, directors, deans, vice presidents and presidents.
