Institutional Change through Diversity and Inclusion

In embracing goals of diversity and inclusion in higher education, we are faced with both possibilities and challenges. The opportunity for intellectual growth, discovery, and innovation are endless. Simultaneously, how do we effectively engage varying perspectives and differing levels of interest and preparation among our students, staff, faculty? Dr. Butler's presentation will explore the ways in which the synergy between possibilities and challenges can lay a strong foundation for organic institutional change.

Submit a proposal for the Fall '14 or Spring '15 Institute!

The goal of the Institute for Student Success is to provide staff, faculty, and administrators with information, resources, and strategies useful in supporting a variety of student learning needs and enhancing the success of students from diverse backgrounds. The Institute includes a range of workshops focusing on various topics, from creating inclusive campus environments to effective pedagogy.
