The El Centro History Department is devoted to encouraging
critical thinking regarding historical issues and provide information
and resources to develop ideas and opinions using sound, factual
reasoning. In addition, the department emphasizes the diversity within
history by emphasizing the roles of all groups being studied including
different racial/ethnic group, gender, and cultural groups.
We believe everyone should have an opportunity to understand their
own history and culture. We also emphasize class discussion and writing
to develop those skills and improving communication.
The faculty also tries to make history enjoyable for students who
may have not had a positive experience in their pre-college educational
experiences. In addition, we are dedicated to make our classes a
comfortable learning environment for all students. We try to make
ourselves available to students to discuss their issues and problems
whether academic or personal.
We bend over backwards to retain each and every student regardless
of the challenges life presents to El Centro students. We all want
success for our students.
