NORTH COAST, Calif. – Mendocino College has joined the Community College Equity Assessment Lab, or CCEAL, National Consortium on College Men of Color.
Participation in the consortium, or NCCMC, will enhance the college’s commitment to improving the success of historically underrepresented and underserved students, including men of color.
Despite programs designed to enhance outcomes for men of color, in the United States only 17 percent and 15 percent of black and Latino men, respectively, earn a certificate, degree, or transfer from a community college to a four-year institution in six years.
