Center for Equity and Cultural Wealth

About the CECW 

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

The Center for Equity and Cultural Wealth (CECW) has hosted an annual Institute in the spring for the last five years. 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.
