We welcome YOU back to America's leading higher education podcast, The EdUp Experience!

It’s YOUR time to #EdUp

In this episode, President Series #130, YOUR guest is Dr. Pam Luster, President at San Diego Mesa College, YOUR host is Dr. Joe Sallustio, aka, THE Voice of Education, & YOUR special guest co-host is Dr. Michelle Cantu-Wilson.

"You have to be the sand in the shell to make the pearl".  Pam is relentless and unapologetic when it comes to inclusiveness, teaching, and learning, and the insights that a data-driven decision-making framework creates.  Pam also talks about the continuum of cultural competence and what happens when there is resistance to equity in her institution.   She also talks about disruptive practices and how higher education needs to adapt.  Finally, she talks about the positive impact of coalition building and why it's necessary to help today's students.  

Dr. Luster has served in several positions in local, state and national organizations. She is currently serving as the immediate past-President of the Chief Executive Officers of California Community Colleges (CEOCCC) Board, and she was appointed to the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) Commission on Diversity, Equity & Inclusion.
