MONTEREY PARK, CA - As East Los Angeles College (ELAC) prepares for the upcoming Fall 2021 semester, there are multiple grassroots marketing campaigns that our faculty, staff, and administrators can take part in.
It is imperative that ELAC continue helping our students by connecting them to resources and encouraging them to continue their educational goals. Not enrolling in college results in loss of educational access to our underserved communities and deeply impacts teaching assignments, primarily for ELAC adjuncts and new faculty.
Please note that face masks and social distancing will be in place for both the Telethon and ELAC Care Squad events.
To sign up for one or all campaign events:
50 Calls Challenge, Together We Win:
This is a phone banking campaign where ELAC faculty, staff, and administrators can volunteer to call ELAC students directly to assist them with their needs. Each caller will be assigned 50 students to call before the start of the Fall semester.
