WHITE HOUSE, HCC CONDUCTING FORUM ON HISPANIC EDUCATIONAL EXCELLENCE

Public Invited to Attend
 
Sept. 2 at HCC

BRIDGEPORT – The White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanic Americans, in conjunction with Housatonic Community College, will conduct a community conversation Wednesday, Sept. 2, geared toward improving the academic achievement of Latinos.

The forum will gather input from attendees on how Latino educational attainment can and should be improved and what the White House Initiative should be doing to facilitate this improvement. The information gleaned from the sessions will serve as the foundation for a new presidential order governing the White House Initiative.

Attendees can choose from one of two sessions: a morning session running from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. and an afternoon session running from 12:45 to 2:45 p.m.  Juan Sepulveda, executive director of the White House Initiative, and Anita T. Gliniecki, president of HCC, will offer welcoming remarks.

People interested in attending should contact Camilla Costantini at 203-332-5222 or ccostantini@hcc.commnet.edu, indicating their name, title, and employer and whether they’ll be attending the morning or afternoon session.

The community conversation will take place in the Events Center in Beacon Hall on the HCC campus. HCC is located at 900 Lafayette Blvd. in Downtown Bridgeport, less than 150 yards off I-95 (Exit 17) and Rte.8 (Exit 1), a block from the Arena at Harbor Yard.
