Javier Cervantes Selected for NCCHC Leadership Fellows Program

Javier Cervantes
Javier Cervantes, director of the Department of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion at Linn-Benton Community College, has been selected to participate in the National Community College Hispanic Council Leadership Fellows Program.

Established more than 20 years ago through the University of San Diego, the 10-day NCCHC Fellows Program provides training, preparation and support of Hispanic leaders in America's community colleges, providing an opportunity to continue in their professional growth.

In his position at LBCC, Cervantes, of Albany, works to prepare students, staff, faculty and local communities to live in an increasingly diverse society and workforce, including working on issues of equity, cultural fluency, capacity and competency, as well as increasing access and retention of underrepresented and diverse populations at the college level.

Cervantes serves as the co-chair of the Inclusion and Diversity Consortium of Oregon Community Colleges, and was recently appointed chair of the Albany Human Relations Commission.

Cervantes has an associate’s degree from East Los Angeles College, a bachelor’s degree from the University of Oregon, a master’s degree from Portland State University, and has substantial credit toward his doctorate degree in Community College Leadership from Oregon State University.
