Our Professional Development Model
ESCALA's programs are based on a self-reflective model of change. We know from experience working with more than 30 HSIs and 300 faculty and staff that changing the way we do our work is difficult, and it takes a while for changes to take hold. For that reason we don't like to do one-shot workshops where we meet with a particular group only once. Our programs are most effective when we have time to build a level of trust with your faculty and staff, and then help them examine how well their practices are working through coaching and continuous reflection on data.

Why We Focus on Hispanic-Serving Institutions
Students have changed, and so has higher education. Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs) are the fastest growing sector of higher education, and enroll over 60% of all Latinx college students. HSI faculty, staff and administrators matter because they play a powerful role in Latinx student retention, graduation, and post-baccalaureate aspirations.
