BHCC's Center for Equity and Cultural Wealth draws on the College’s nationally recognized work to design culturally inclusive learning environments that value the strengths of our diverse students, faculty, staff and local communities. The Center engages the campus in culturally relevant scholarship, practice and advocacy focused on achieving equitable outcomes for all students. Through a multifaceted and intersectional campus-wide conversation, The Center explores the ways in which meaningful community partnerships, equity-minded practices and culturally-grounded pedagogies can be enacted to foster the success of all students and members of the College community.

Annual Institute

For the last four years, the Center for Equity and Cultural Wealth (CECW) has hosted an annual Institute in the spring. The Institute brings together higher education faculty, staff and administrators, artists, community-based organizations, K-12 educators and cultural institutions to explore scholarship and practice that supports equity outcomes and values community cultural wealth.

The Center for Equity and Cultural Wealth (CECW) was created to be a resource to our community in infusing equity and cultural wealth into the lifeblood of our institution.

Recognition and Reckoning: Empowering Men of Color through Equity and Cultural Wealth

5th Annual Center for Equity and Cultural Wealth Institute 

June 1-3, 2022

Re-envisioning our institutions as spaces designed to empower men of color will require a radical and honest reevaluation of who we are and what we do. This year’s Institute will center the cultural wealth of men of color and apply an equity-minded lens to our own institutions. The three-day experience will feature nationally renowned scholars, artists, and activists, including Dr. Ibram X. Kendi. June 1 and 2 will be held virtually and provide breakout sessions, workshops, and critical reflection and networking opportunities. June 3 will offer in person and virtual opportunities to strategize and implement key takeaways from the Institute.
