Welcome to CoCEAL!


CoCEAL is a coalition of post-secondary and professional educators devoted to the educational success of the state’s LatinX population. The group grew out of a larger, statewide Hispanic Association of College and University group that began to meet in earnest in July of 2008. The intent of the group is to build a sustainable coalition of professional educators at the post-secondary level who will actively participate in the state-level and national post-secondary education agenda with a targeted and particular focus on success for the LatinX residents of the state of Colorado.


CoCEAL President, Joél Orozco Almeida, M.A., shares a Welcome message along with a message about the future of CoCEAL.
