Centers and College Resources

The Center for Neurodiversity, Learning, and Wellness explores the possibilities in education when we embrace our differences as variations to be understood and supported. Through certificate programs, weekend workshops, and experiential learning aimed at students of all ages, we intend to promote a greater understanding of neurological diversity in our culture.

The Center for Learning Innovation is a first-of-its-kind lab designed to support and train educators from across Southern California and beyond in 21st-century learning competencies. We support excellence in inclusive teaching and learning, with a specialization in anti-racist/anti-bias educational practices and educational technology innovation.
