ACHIEVING THE DREAM EQUITY STATEMENT

Community colleges are an indispensable asset in our nation’s efforts to ensure and preserve access to higher education and success for all students, particularly students of color, low-income students, and other historically underrepresented student populations. However, student access and success in higher education continue to be impacted by the effects of structural racism and systemic poverty. Achievement gaps among student groups reflect structural inequities that are often the result of historic and systemic social injustices. These inequities typically manifest themselves as the unintended or indirect consequences of unexamined institutional or social policies.

Achieving the Dream believes that access to a high-quality education in an inclusive environment is the right of all individuals and imperative for the continued advancement of a strong democracy and workforce. Achieving the Dream also believes higher education institutions have an obligation to work toward equity for their students. Equity is grounded in the principle of fairness. In higher education, equity refers to ensuring that each student receives what they need to be successful through the intentional design of the college experience.

Achieving the Dream expects colleges to dismantle the barriers facing underserved students. Colleges must routinely scrutinize structural barriers to equity and invest in equity-minded policies, practices, and behaviors that lead to success for all students.

NISOD Free Webinar, Wednesday, October 12,2016 200-3:00

Empowering Faculty With Course-Level Data to Drive Institutional Change

Giving faculty access to all course-level data has been nothing short of revolutionary for the culture of Pierce College. We knew that sending student success data to faculty would not be enough. The college sought to provide faculty with direct access to their own data (and the data of their colleagues), with the ability to sort student achievement data by course, section, modality, timeframe, subsequent success, and a variety of demographic measures. To this end, Pierce’s Center for Engagement and Learning began providing frequent training to help faculty members understand their data. In this session, participants will learn not only why they might want to do something similar at their colleges, but how to achieve it with minimal cost and/or pushback.

Tom Broxson, District Dean, Natural Sciences and Mathematics, Pierce College (WA)

Wednesday, October 12, 2016

Eastern: 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm
