AAC&U Webinar: Advancing Diversity and Inclusivity through Multi-level Strategic Leadership

When: Mon Nov 5, 2018 12pm – 1pm (EST)
Where: RSVP Link: https://orgsync.com/23306/forms/342309
(you will be contacted with location)

This webinar builds on Kathy Takayama, Matthew Kaplan, and Alison Cook-Sather’s article in Liberal Education, “Advancing Diversity and Inclusion through Strategic Multilevel Leadership,” to articulate the strategies and processes that are needed to synergistically coordinate university-wide leadership efforts, interactions and initiatives at the school/college or department level, and efforts by individual instructors and activists to create change in their own classrooms or more broadly at their institutions.

The presenters will share institutional cases and highlight issues to consider when designing diversity initiatives, especially those related to the mandates, challenges, and possibilities of specific institutional contexts. Webinar attendees will have access to companion materials and resources for their own institutional work.

There will be time for Q&A during the webinar, and we encourage participants to send questions in advance to webinars@aacu.org.

Becoming a Student-Ready College: 2018 Teaching & Learning Day with Dr. Tia McMair

On January 12, the Brown Center for Faculty Innovation hosted Dr. Tia Brown McNair, Vice President in the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Student Success at Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U), for Stetson’s annual Teaching and Learning Day.  Dr. McNair lead an open discussion based on the recently published book she co-authored, Becoming a Student-Ready College.

Stetson faculty and staff gathered in the duPont-Ball Library to explore critical questions such as “What are colleges and universities doing to prepare for the students who are entering their institutions?” and “What must change in an institution’s policies, practices, and culture in order to be student-ready?”.

After Dr. Brown’s initial remarks, attendees worked in small groups to create drawings that represent the state of student-readiness at Stetson and brainstormed directions that we might design and implement to support success for more students.

Making Excellence Inclusive

April 6, 2018

This year’s theme celebrates pedagogical strategies that support all learners. Excellence can be inclusive. However, this requires the academy to do the hard work of turning a critical eye on our own practices to recognize the assumptions we make and begin to decode our disciplinary strategies for the increasingly diverse  talented class of learners (and educators) arriving at college each year.

2018 Colloquium Deadlines:

Submission Deadline: February 20, 2018
Notification of Acceptance: March 10, 2018
Online registration opens: Feb 12 – Mar 31, 2018

Is it on your calendar? Teaching and Learning Day with Tia Brown McNair – January 12, 2018

Each year, the Brown Center for Faculty Innovation and Excellence hosts a national scholar to Stetson University for the annual Teaching and Learning Day (formerly known as Faculty Learning Community Day). This day of reflection and discussion provides an opportunity for the Stetson community to grapple with big issues that impact our work delivering high-impact educational experiences in the 21st century. We hope that you will join us as we engage in thought-provoking conversation about Becoming a Student Ready College!

Space is limited
RSVP to save your spot!

Tia Brown McNair will engage the Stetson University community in a conversation raised in a recently published book she co-authored, Becoming a Student-Ready College . The national conversation asking “Are students college-ready?” concentrates on numerous factors that are beyond higher education’s control. This book flips the college readiness conversation to provide a new perspective on creating institutional value and facilitating student success. Instead of focusing on student preparedness for college (or lack thereof), this book asks the more pragmatic question of what are colleges and universities doing to prepare for the students who are entering their institutions? What must change in an institution’s policies, practices, and culture in order to be student-ready?

Dr. Tia Brown McNair currently serves as Vice President in the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Student Success at the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U). Dr. Tia Brown McNair oversees both funded projects and AAC&U’s continuing programs on equity, inclusive excellence, high-impact educational practices, and student success, including AAC&U’s Network for Academic Renewal series of yearly working conferences.
