(Southern) Student Equity and Success Regional Meetings

The Academic Senate for California Community Colleges is holding two Regional Meetings focusing on Student Equity planning and implementation.

How can colleges best mitigate disproportionate impact? What information and analyses are needed? What interventions would be most helpful? With a November deadline for Student Equity Plans fast approaching, colleges must craft meaningful ways to locally address student access, success, and achievement gaps across student populations.

The meetings are designed to engage faculty and administration in helpful ways to aid local Student Equity Plan development. Additionally, a focus will be on building faculty-driven processes to engage student success and equity.

Single participants and college teams of faculty, CIOs, and CSSOs are encouraged to come. If possible, please bring some of your equity data to reflect on at the meeting.

Topics will address: equity plan requirements, understanding disproportionate impact data, examples of equity plans (and how colleges have built them), reading and responding to data, identifying interventions that work, and monitoring and evaluating plans for effectiveness.

Presenters include:

Debra Sheldon, California Community Colleges Chancellor's Office 

Brad Phillips, Institute for Evidence-Based Change 

Brianna Hays, Institutional Researcher, San Diego Mesa College 

Elaine Kuo, Institutional Researcher, Foothill College 

Carolyn Holcroft, Academic Senate President, Foothill College 

Robert "BJ" Snowden, Academic Senate President, Cosumnes River College
