A Multifaceted Approach to Assess Institutional Climate and Effectively Respond to Needs
Failure to identify and address the specific needs Black students have could inadvertently foster a sociopolitical climate on campus in which Black students may struggle to find a sense of belonging or mattering, leading to lower retention, persistence, and graduation rates.
Join us on Wednesday, January 10, 2024, when our presenter explores the Black student experience through a multifaceted approach that will offer a more holistic visualization of their experiences, considerations for assessing institutional climate, and actionable steps you can take to design and implement appropriate support initiatives. He will provide you with a more comprehensive toolkit for effectively responding to the needs of Black students and enhancing the overall campus climate.
Overcome the sociopolitical initiatives aimed at undermining diversity, equity and inclusion and empower your faculty and staff, who are instrumental in supporting Black students, to carefully navigate this climate to ensure their success. Validate Black students’ experiences and ensure institutional policies and practices are authentic and culture changing.
Gain crucial, actionable takeaways that will help you:
- Discuss actionable strategies to understand Black student experiences and introduce important considerations for assessing institutional climates specific to Black students.
- Implement an institutional wide approach when addressing what factors must be considered to understand the holistic culture of an institution and that cultural impact on Black students.
- Engage in a cross-functional collaborative practice to fully understand the Black students’ perception of the institutional culture to clearly identify gaps and acknowledge the need to make systemic and sustainable change.
- Take inventory now of your institutionalized policies and practices that may be harmful or disproportionately impactful to Black students, so you can help them to feel a true sense of belonging.
- Validate Black students’ identity to ensure that your diversity, including, and equity work is not done at the expense of your Black students.
