Time & Location
About the Event
The challenge of ensuring equity in higher education is alarming. According to the U.S. Department of Education, “Our country's international competitors are improving faster than we are educationally, and many are having greater success in closing achievement gaps—which remain stubbornly wide in the United States”. As institutions grapple with and process current research results regarding equity, the topic is now leading the way as a key institutional strategy for student success. This session is a “must-attend” for administrators, faculty and those who want to learn more about institutional/classroom commitment to equity and how to effectively create meaningful classroom experiences for historically underserved students. Learn best practices on: • Identifying underserved populations in higher education; • Creating equitable opportunities to help students meet learning outcomes and; • Versatile and transferable teaching strategies to help underserved students achieve. This is a session not to be missed! Be ready to learn, engage and share!
