|Dear 3CSN Wayfinding Community,|
We hope you are doing well and finding some bright spots in our virtual academic spaces.
As a way of reconnecting with our purpose, this week we will feature spotlight sessions facilitated by two of our leadership teams focused on connection, purpose, and identity. Mission College (Santa Clara) will present “Let’s Link Up with Equity: How to reconnect with yourself and others,” and Moorpark College will present, “Moorparkin’ It: Revitalize your college community by connecting to your “why”. Join these sessions to hear how these two campuses have made connection, purpose, and educator identity a priority– and how this can lead to system-wide transformation.
We are also excited to share that this week we will begin our Fall Equity in Action: Praxis Sessions lineup with “Text Selection in English Literature Courses.” Join us to consider ways to make our text selection more equitable. A facilitated discussion will follow the presentation.
