Engage with a Community of Practice

 

Programs for Latino Student Success is a community of practice for practitioners to learn and share strategies regarding their programmatic efforts to intentionally SERVE Latino students. Program leaders that are recognized through Examples of Excelencia create the foundation of this community and build common cause with the broader Excelencia in Action network.

Excelencia is offering community events designed to foster connections and facilitate learning as a cohort of practitioners accelerating Latino student success across the country. Please note that most of our events are open to all practitioners but some are intended solely for our previously recognized programs (Examples, Finalists, and Programs to Watch). 

 

Pláticas (Conversations)

Pláticas are interactive sessions for program leaders to learn and share strategies to engage multiple stakeholders in their programmatic efforts to intentionally SERVE Latino students. Designed with peer-to-peer learning in mind, the conversations take place as roundtable discussions and provide an interactive space for participants to engage and connect with one another. We invite attendees to download and read our Getting the most out of a Plática handout, a resource that shares our view on the plática format and how to build a great conversation using confianza, Excelencia’s trust-based approach. All sessions occur on Wednesdays and are not recorded.
