Community colleges are a staple of American higher education; there are over 900 community colleges in the US and nearly half of all students attend a community college. HxA had a panel conversation on Tuesday, May 4 at 7pm ET with community college educators that explored the unique challenges and opportunities at these institutions.
The panelists – Andrea Fabrizio, Greg Marks, and Mark Urista – shared their experiences on community college campuses. They spoke to common misconceptions about community colleges, their experiences with viewpoint diversity and constructive disagreement in their classrooms, the pedagogical methods and strategies that have been most successful, and campus trends they’ve seen over the years.
The event was moderated by Dr. Helen Benjamin, former Chancellor of the Contra Costa Community College District.
This virtual event was free and open to the public. Advanced registration was required.
