Welcome to CoCEAL!

Please join us for our Summer Membership Meeting on Friday, June 21st from 8:00-4:00 at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs (UCCS) campus. The theme centering the meeting will be diversity, inclusion and equity focused. Our first presenter will be Dr. Megan Bell, the Executive Director of Community Learning and Assessment at UCCS. Dr. Bell’s research agenda includes multiracial identities, mentoring, and college student development using a critical intersectional theoretical lens. Our second presenter will be Dr. Chris Bell, a TED speaker and renowned media scholar and faculty member at UCCS. Dr. Bell’s work focuses on media and representation of people of color in media. And the ways that race, class, and gender intersect in different forms in the media. We are excited to place emphasis on our Latinx students who share multiple cultural, racial and ethnic identities and how that impacts their experiences in our institutions of higher educations.  Please RSVP here.

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.
