2018 Dr. John W. Rice Diversity & Equity Award Success Stories
In July, Chancellor Eloy Ortiz Oakley awarded the 2018 Dr. John W. Rice Diversity & Equity Award to two community college programs that are leading the way in promoting diversity and equity and closing the achievement gap. Cuyamaca College’s Accelerated Pathways through Transferable English, Math and English as a Second Language program and Santa Barbara City College’s Single Parents Arriving Ready for College (SPARC) program were this year’s award recipients.
Dr. John W. Rice served on the California Community Colleges Board of Governors from 1992 until his death in 2000. While on the board, he displayed a strong commitment to multicultural learning experiences for all students. The award was established in 2001 and honors community college staff members, districts, colleges or programs that have made the greatest contribution towards faculty, staff and student diversity and equity. The award is generously supported by the Foundation for California Community Colleges.
