CCBC regrets to announce that the 6th Annual Culturally Responsive Teaching and Learning Conference has been postponed. The conference and Train-the-Trainer Institute were to take place on April 22 through April 24, 2020 at the Maritime Conference Center.  

In light of CCBC’s president Dr. Sandra Kurtinitis’ recent announcement cancelling large group meetings both on and off campus, and the ongoing uncertainty around the coronavirus, we have decided to postpone the conference. We are now working on new dates and will keep you updated. Anyone who has registered and paid for the conference will receive a separate email with details on refunds. There is no need at this time to call or email. If you have made reservations for the Maritime Conference Center hotel (or any other hotel), contact them immediately and directly to cancel reservations at

We apologize for any inconvenience, but feel that caution should rule at this moment. We will be in touch with the new conference date.
