Conflict resolution, compassion and active listening are just some of the integral building blocks that constitute PCC’s Listening Intervention Team for Equity (LITE), a new initiative now recruiting its next cohort of trainees.

Targeted to PCC students, faculty and staff, LITE is a resource for those who have experienced inequity or who are in need of guidance to navigate intercultural dynamics at the college. Trained listeners — faculty and staff only — serve as key internal points of contact to offer compassion, share skill-building techniques, and connect those in need with other existing support resources.

Faculty and staff interested in becoming trained as LITE listeners should submit a completed application, which is now posted on the LITE Web page — The deadline to submit is end of day, Wednesday, Jan. 25 for the winter 2017 term, and Monday, May 1 for the spring 2017 term.

In the event of questions, please contact Karen Paez at or Kate Chester at

PCC offers this limited open forum as an extension of the respectful, well-reasoned discourse we expect in our classroom discussions. As such, we welcome all viewpoints, but monitor comments to be sure they stick to the topic and contribute to the conversation. We will remove them if they contain or link to abusive material, personal attacks, profanity, off-topic items, or spam. This is the same behavior we require in our hallways and classrooms. Our online spaces are no different.
