Faculty Empowerment and Leadership Academy

FELA Cover Art

The ASCCC proudly introduces the new Faculty Empowerment and Leadership Academy (FELA), a one-to-one mentoring program designed to meet the needs of our diverse faculty in the California community college system. The program will provide opportunities for participants to engage in empowerment for personal and professional development, including networking opportunities and support through an entire year (starting in fall 2020 and ending in spring 2021). 

FELA will focus on the development of faculty from historically underrepresented groups in higher education. The academy will provide opportunities to connect with leaders from across the state, to empower faculty to seek leadership roles, and to provide regular contact with mentors. All activities in this leadership development program are designed to ensure participants are ready to meet the challenges of engaging in transformative leadership and equity-minded approaches to working with diverse student populations. 

Mentor and Mentee Applications will be available soon! Check back here for more updates, or subscribe to our newsletter here.
