Photos from our Cal Poly, Angelo State facilitator and curriculum trainings (June and Aug 2022).
Between 2018-2022, we worked closely with three HSIs: Yakima Valley College (Yakima, WA) Angelo State University (San Angelo, TX) and Cal Poly Humboldt (Arcata, CA) to develop institutional capacity. All three HSIs dedicated grant funds to send faculty teams of 10-20 each to our CTL-HSI program.
In the final year of their Title V grants, each college had enough traction with their faculty to create curriculum for and launch their own ESCALA-certified year-long in-house professional development program based on teaching in an HSI.
Check out these presentations and learn how these colleges began to institutionalize servingness for Latinx students!

“ESCALA gave me the opportunity to really lean into serving my students and gave me a platform for engaging in faculty development with peers. I have learned so much through the process of supporting colleagues..and ultimately gave me new roles on campus in supporting faculty in improving the classroom experiences for Latinx students.”
