Hispanic Advisory Board information flyer


The Hispanic Advisory Board advises the college of relevant issues and serves as a bridge for partnerships and collaborations with the Hispanic community of Cumberland County.

Message from the President, Dr. Yves Salomon-Fernandez:

As President of Cumberland County College, one of my goals is to invigorate the Mission of the Hispanic Advisory Board so that, together, we can make a more meaningful impact on Cumberland County and strengthen our foundation to propel the county to a new level of prosperity. Access to higher education must be an opportunity afforded to all community members who have a dream to pursue higher education. We will work as partners with our stakeholders with a level of cohesion not previously experienced so that we can maximize our collective impact.
