As an instructor with over three decades of experience, I was surprised to find out how little I know about teaching men of color. The CORA training altered many of my preconceptions and gave me excellent tips to use in my classroom. Thank you CORA.

The lessons I learned taking this program can be applied to all students. It made me reflect on my approach and understand what I'm doing right or wrong. All community college instructors, especially those that teach in racially diverse areas, should take this course. It will make you a better instructor.

CORA training is as essential a training as there is for teachers teaching in the community college system because it focuses on teaching men of color and all the ways they are misunderstood and our assumptions about them. And what I learned will help me be a better teacher to all students, which is bonus added.

This course is well organized, easy to use, and thorough. Recommendations are based on extensive research and experience. Any higher education faculty can gain multicultural competence as teachers by participating in this program. Amazing presenters handled complicated and provocative questions during live sessions with grace, skill, and insight. Thank you!

The Black Lives Matter zoom sessions were all such a great resource and place to learn! Whether it was Dr. Smith sharing the framework of Racial Battle Fatigue or seeing Michael Brown Senior, it was such a great way to connect academic concepts with real world applications and context. I’m sure I will remember that experience for years to come, as it really did feel like a once in a lifetime thing.
