Faculty Equity and Diversity Awards

CCA is proud to have initiated its Faculty Equity and Diversity Awards for outstanding service on behalf of community college faculty.

The GBLT Award, in honor of David Sanchez, CTA’s first openly gay president, recognizes faculty who have supported, promoted and educated our community college family regarding gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender (GLBT) issues.

The Ethnic Minority Award, in honor of Mary Ann Pacheco, a Hispanic professor at Rio Hondo College, is given to faculty who promote equal access and treatment for minorities on campus.

The Part-time Faculty Award in honor of David Milroy, another longtime faculty activist, is awarded to faculty who have worked to improve working conditions for part-time faculty.

Award winners are honored during CCA’s annual Spring Conference. Nominations may be by self-nomination, chapter nomination, or any member may nominate another member. The nominee must agree to be nominated. Awards for the 2019 year have been given and are listed below.  The nomination form for 2020 is available HERE.
