BFSA Members Featured in Aspirations to Achievement Men of Color Video

24 Jun

BFSA members, Dr. Marcia Wilson, Director of Workforce Development Programs and Grants and Elton Robinson, Department Chair of Cosmetology–both from Los Angeles Trade Technical College–are featured in Achieving the Dream’s “Aspirations to Achievement:   Men of Color and Community College” video, which brings together data about the engagement and attainment of Latinos and Black males in community colleges.

The video highlights the voices of students and faculty, drawn from focus groups conducted in six Achieving the Dream colleges–Austin Community College (TX), Tarrant County College (TX), Los Angeles Southwest College (CA), Los Angeles Trade Technical College (CA), Lansing Community College (MI), and Jackson Community College (MI)–as well as other institutions at the Phi Theta Kappa convention. Emerging from the multi-year project are urgent questions that must be addressed in every community college committed to equity in outcomes across diverse student groups. Perspectives vary on the answers to these questions.  View the video below noting Marcia Wilson at minute 17:01 and Elton Robinson at 18:14.


Conceived as an initiative in 2004 by Lumina Foundation and seven founding partner organizations, Achieving the Dream leads a comprehensive non-governmental reform movement for student success in higher education history. Together with their network of over 200 institutions of higher education, 100 coaches and advisors, 15 state policy teams, and numerous investors and partners working throughout 34 states and the District of Columbia, they are helping nearly 4 million community college students have a better chance of realizing greater economic opportunity and achieving their dreams.
