Our professional development (FLEX) days have centered on making our college student-ready.
Through interactive sessions that center student experiences, we have learned and
discussed actionable strategies for building on the strengths our students bring to
PCC. English professor Dr. Silvia Toscano has also created a speaker series on closing
equity gaps experienced by Chicanx-Latinx students through culturally competent pedagogies
and high-impact practices.
Cross Cultural Center
This campus resource brings the classroom to life by offering experiential opportunities
that value and build on the diverse lived experiences that make up our students at
PCC. The Cross Cultural Center is a hub for student leadership development and advocacy
grounded in cultural humility. Signature events include mixers for African American/Black,
Latinx, Southeast Asian, Pacific Islander, and LGBTQ students to welcome them to campus
in the Fall.
