Cañada College Stands Against Racism
Cañada College has made a campus-wide commitment to stand against racism and support Black Lives Matter. The College recognizes the critical need for anti-racist practices, services and teaching in our community. This website provides several campus-wide resources that are dedicated to our commitment.
Emerging Antiracism Framework & Resources
As a result of three campus-wide Critical Conversations on Race held during the summer, 2020, as well as the input of the participants in the College Leadership Retreat in August, 2020, the Planning & Budgeting Council (PBC) considered a draft Antiracism Framework at their September 2 and September 16 meetings. Campus feedback is sought online and in college council, senate, committee and division meetings. In addition, the PBC is considering the formation of a college-wide Anti-Racism Task Force.
