The Technology Job Fair will provide the opportunity for colleges with technology-related vacancies to connect with individuals from the Anaheim and surrounding areas seeking technology-related employment. The primary goal of the 2000 CIT Job Fair will be to create an affordable way for community college employers to meet face-to-face with highly qualified candidates to fill vacant positions at their colleges.


Also planned for the 2000 CIT is a special Learning Center Course involving the Museum of Tolerance located within the Simon Wiesenthal Center. The Museum course will be a meaningful and practical occasion designed specifically for attendees of CIT and will educate participants about the importance of tolerance in society. In addition to a tour of the museum, participants of this Learning Center Course will experience an interactive, high tech, and hands-on educational event that will focus on two themes: the dynamics of racism and prejudice in America and the history of the Holocaust. The Museum tour and educational experience is scheduled for 10:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. on November 15, 2000. Lunch and transportation are provided.

In today's tumultuous technology world, serving as a CEO of a community or technical college can be a tall task. Providing leadership for the thoughtful integration of technology in instruction, operations, and services at times challenges even the best of presidents. Aggressive vendors, cyber-savvy students, techno-wary faculty, and digitally divided communities combined with increasingly escalating costs make the stakes for CEOs that much higher. If you're wrestling with these issues and want to join with colleague from around the world to explore key strategies that cut through the hype, the CIT CEO Summit is for you. Key technology leaders who have put strategies in place-strategies that have been recognized nationally and internationally-share core ideas and engage participants in a thoughtful dialog about the road ahead.

 


The technological advances of the Digital Age provide unparalleled access to information. However, these advances have led to what many have called the “Digital Divide,” where technological opportunities are disproportionately distant from minority and economically challenged populations. Community college educators must take an aggressive stance in finding quality ways to teach and reach our diverse student cohorts and communities. During this summit (1:00 - 4:00 p.m., Thursday, November 16), National Digital Divide leaders highlight model programs and current trends and facilitate interactive focus groups aimed at helping the League define broad-scale Digital Divide initiatives. For more information see Bridging the Digital Divide Project.
