Diversity, Equity and Inclusion: A conversation with Dr. Pollard of Montgomery College

April 23, 2019

On today’s episode of In The Know, ACCT Assessment Specialist Semhar Abed, Director of Educational Services Colleen Allen, and Director of Communications David Conner interview Doctor DeRionne Pollard, President of Montgomery College in Maryland. Community colleges tend to be exceptionally diverse places. This diversity has tremendous value, but it also means that trustees and presidents need to be aware of the wide variety of challenges that students and prospective students face. This conversation focuses on diversity, equity and inclusion.

ACCT's Equity Action Agenda was developed to guide community college boards and presidents in creating a more diverse, inclusive and equitable institutional culture. It can be downloaded here.
