Black Student Success: Increase Recruitment, Retention, Engagement and Completion

The more inclusive and equitable your campus is, the better your student recruitment, retention and engagement will be. Institutions need to be proactive in their approach to create a more welcoming environment and ensure black student satisfaction by recognizing the unique differences, experiences and struggles they face both on and off campus. Explore how current events impact your Black students and analyze the similarities of history and current campus climates to help your students seek answers to their concerns not readily provided by your institution.  Presented On February 14, 2018 by Dr. Ryan C. Holmes, Associate Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students at the University of Miami in Florida

Student Success Summits

The 17/18 Student Success Summits are focused on the theme: Culturally Relevant Pedagogy and the Road to Equity, facilitated by the ESCALA team. The purpose of these four summits is to create a community of practice focused on developing a culture of shared norms and values that establish an inclusive learning environment, one that prohibits anyone from being disadvantaged or unjustly treated because of social identity or status. The Student Success Summits will offer information, strategies, and guidance to support the identification, integration and implementation of inclusive pedagogical methods that promote discipline-specific learning objectives.

Microaggressions Initiative

In Spring 2018, the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (ODEI) will be running a pilot that will be examining the effectiveness of macro/microaggressions training.  ODEI takes a data informed approach, which looks at HSU courses that continue to show gaps in achievement. Faculty will be invited to participate in the pilot from all three colleges. The pilot will involve partnerships with CTL,  and the Office of Institutional Effectiveness (OIE). The results from the pilot will be shared with the campus community. ODEI would like to scale the training campus-wide if it is effective in changing peoples awareness around macro/microaggressions.
