The Student Life Perspective
Students are often at the forefront of efforts to move campuses forward on equity and inclusion issues. Their protests and demands, which have institution-wide and human resource implications, have driven significant change at institutions across the country in recent years, and they show no sign of letting up in the near future. Because student affairs administrators often have the most student contact and connections, collaboration between these administrators, student activists, student groups and chief diversity officers can help prevent campus crises and help institutions heal when crises do arise. Come explore the importance of collaborating on equity and inclusion issues from a student affairs administrator’s perspective.
