Congratulations to the Humboldt branch for their outstanding mission-based program for May. Humboldt's program was "Encouraging Women to Succeed in Community Colleges". Their speaker was Dr. Angelina Hill from College of the Redwoods. Dr. Hill has an extensive background in institutional research, planning and accreditation. She has a wealth of knowledge about College of the Redwoods. More women than ever before (upwards of 4 million) are relying on community colleges for higher education and workforce preparation. AAUW recently released a report that includes best practices and policies to help them succeed.
