Presenter: Dr. Alex Kappus, Senior Director for Student Success in the College of Education, NC State University
We must prepare community college graduates ready to lead in an increasingly complex, diverse, and changing world. Employers are seeking graduates who will enter the workforce ready to engage in diverse teams and represent their organizations well to the community. Furthermore, equity gaps persist in workforce development, and community colleges need to address these challenges directly. In this session, participants will learn about a framework for thinking about student leadership development and ways to integrate learning about diversity, equity, and inclusion throughout the community college experience.
