CODE events help new students connect

Creating Opportunities for Diversity in Education (CODE) is designed to support underrepresented minority and low-income students with resources for every aspect of succeeding as a college student. Hosted by the Office of Cultural Diversity, CODE brings students together to learn and connect throughout the year.  

This summer, CODE events will focus on Engagement and Service.

Cracking the CODE to Student Engagement: June 18, 2021, 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m.

Students will learn how to get engaged on ECTC’s Campus and why student engagement is so crucial to their futures. Faculty and advisors will discuss opportunities within Phi Theta Kappa and opportunities to study abroad for a low cost as well as options available with the First-Year Experience Club.

Cracking the CODE to Student Success at ECTC: July 23, 2021, 12:00 p.m.-2:00 p.m.

Learn about services, faculty, staff, tools, tutoring and resources for success at ECTC and beyond. Students will get familiar with Blackboard and free online assistance programs and learn how to best communicate with instructors.  

“CODE is an ever-evolving membership of enrolled ECTC students.” said Office of Cultural Diversity Director Jerisia Lamons. “These students are forming trusted connections to bolster their experience on campus, gaining support of people who will walk with them during their transition into and throughout college.”
