What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Traditional Student Scholarship

Many local students are the first in their families to go to college and BRTC is here to help them succeed. Through the BRTC Foundation Traditional Student Scholarship, students are given the chance to earn their degree and improve their lives!

Economically disadvantaged people

Even though the economy has improved, many families are still struggling to find a job, with a low-paying job, or are having to learn new skills to succeed. Black River Technical College can help. The BRTC Foundation Non-Traditional Student Scholarship can help relieve the burden adults are facing so they can earn a degree and improve their and their families lives!

Population(s) Served
Adults
Economically disadvantaged people

In rural Northeast Arkansas, cultural opportunities are very limited. That is why Black River Technical College and the BRTC Foundation have partnered with the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum to spread awareness of the atrocities of the Holocaust during WWII. Through the Holocaust Survivor Series, local student and the public have the opportunity to hear a first-hand account of survival during the Holocaust from a real Holocaust survivor.

Data
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
Policies and processes
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
