COVID-19 has rapidly upended life for many collegians and has exacerbated inequities that already existed. The disruption to educational plans and imposed challenges of the global pandemic have far-reaching. Concurrent with the health crisis, is racial unrest, an economic decline, and leadership vacuum widening opportunity gaps and making racialized inequities more acute. This is especially the case for community college students many of which have marginalized identities already struggling with existing inequalities. This ASHE webinar co-sponsored by the Belk Center for Community College Leadership, the Office for Community College Research and Leadership, and the Council for the Study of Community Colleges will discuss the imperative of addressing equity and supporting community college students during this critical period in U.S. higher education.
