The Latino Advisory Committee First Meeting at Triton College - Thursday, February 26, 2009

The first meeting of the Latino Advisory Committee was held at Triton College on Thursday, February 26th. The committee, which consists of community college administrators, adult education providers, and local and state elected officials, discussed the barriers facing Latino students in the community college system. The committee also heard from a panel of Latino students at Triton College as well as best practices from the college’s Latino initiatives and support programs. The committee will meet again in May and October, 2009. Recommendations on how to improve academic preparation, access, and student services for Latino students will be presented to the ICCB after the committee’s October meeting.
