This interactive day-long institute will feature nationally recognized keynote speakers Dr. Jamila Lysicott and Father Greg Boyle. Participants will engage in learning opportunities and activities to develop a deeper understanding of what equity means, what it looks like in practice, and how it is manifested or stifled on their campuses. A wide variety of breakout sessions will offer conversations around equity challenges impeding student success and opportunities to brainstorm practical solutions that empower all members of the educational community. Institutions boldly addressing their own equity challenges will share their strategies, obstacles, and outcomes. Teams will be challenged to engage with new tools to use in their own equity strategy.
At the end of the conference, participants will leave with ideas and strategies for the attending team to take back to their peers on campus.
