The B.U.I.L.D. Series


LAVC Professional Development Presents the BUILD Series

What is the BUILD series?

The BUILD series consists of campus events centered around a specific book or media source and the ideas it presents. Participants  will read the featured book, watch related videos, or attend guest lectures. We will meet in groups to discuss how the ideas can inform what we do as a college and in our own lives. These gatherings will build our skills relating to Guided Pathways, equity, diversity, academic excellence, and the changing  demands of the college environment. Everyone is encouraged to check out the previous books and/or media.

Come, join us, for one or all of the events in a series!

What books are featured?

“As you discover what strength  you can draw from your community in this world  from which it stands apart, look outward as well as inward.  Build bridges instead of walls.”

- Chief Justice Sonia Sotomayor
