The 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st Century CLCs) program supports the creation of community learning centers that provide academic enrichment opportunities during non-school hours for children, particularly students who attend high-poverty and low-performing schools. The program helps students meet state and local student standards in core academic subjects, such as reading and math; offers students a broad array of enrichment activities that can complement their regular academic programs; and offers literacy and other educational services to the families of participating children. To learn more, visit the US Department of Education's website or visit the California Department of Education's website.
Project Director Professor Glynda Hull is an expert in the field of Literacy, and has played an active role in designing and implementing the digital technology and literacy components to be implemented in ECUC. Learn more about her work and research interests here.

Among her awards, she has twice been honored with the Richard Braddock Memorial Award by College Composition and Communication for best article. The committee was impressed that she practices what she preaches: by providing innovative learning experiences to those learning how to provide learning experiences to others. They also noted that many of her students had won awards in the field. One of her colleagues says "Professor Hull’s teaching is an absolute wonder to behold. To visit her classes and seminars is an exercise in amazement. It is an extraordinary pleasure to watch as her undergraduate and graduate students set aside their self-absorption and enter wide-eyed into the play of ideas.” In 2003 she received the Berkeley campus’s Distinguished Teaching Award. She joined the Berkeley faculty in 1987. In 2001 she also received from the National Council of Teachers of English their award for best article reporting qualitative or quantitative research related to technical or scientific communication.

Gee et al., 1996).
