Rockland Community College President Michael Baston joins our fall professional development day for a conversation with employees focused on equity and access. Summer protests in our community and across the country have focused on police brutality and the systemic racism that continues to perpetuate racial disparities. In this conversation, a panel of employees will share their own experiences at the college and in the community and discuss why and how what we do matters if we want to move forward together to create more equitable opportunities for students, employees and our greater community. Special thanks to our employee panel: Brian Bull, Greg Evans, Stany Munaku and Claudia Riumallo.
