A major challenge for universities today is surmounting the academic, physical and social problems triggered by the pandemic, which will reap short-term effects that are likely to pass, such as physical distancing and outdoor learning to those that may trigger lasting changes. The most important and lasting challenge is recognizing the profound and overlooked social equity issues in remote learning environments, more digital learning/IT, and access to education for those most affected by the global pandemic in ways both economic as well as health-related.
Many institutions of higher education are now seeking ways to engage students to ensure fairness, access, transparency and responsiveness.
Surprisingly little is being discussed about social equity, equal access, and the widening gap in influence and voice between different student segments. In this summit discussion, we’ll propose and develop solution goals for social equity on campus, student engagement for assessing needs, and strategies and tools to improve equity and voice.
The EQUITY MATTERS Leadership Summit, with a public discussion moderated by journalist Sarah Brown of The Chronicle of Higher Education will tackle these significant challenges. Participants include Lori White, president of DePauw University, and Kellie Cloud, executive director in residential life at Arizona State University. Christiana Moss, FAIA, of Studio Ma in Phoenix, has convened the group.
Registration for the public Zoom talk is through EventBrite and more information is available through C.C. Sullivan and at studioma.com/news or through C.C. Sullivan, 914-462-2096.
