Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Workshop
Presenter: Dr. Alex Kappus, Senior Director for Student Success in the College of Education, NC State University
The Guided Pathways model encourages colleges to make deliberate decisions about student success, both in designing pathways and supporting students through their journey. In social science inquiry, scholars often write a positionality statement about how their identities may influence their research. How often do we consider how our own social identities may bias, cloud, or cause us to make harmful assumptions about students? In this session, participants will participate in an identity mapping exercise and consider ways to close equity gaps by encouraging a culture of reflective practice while carrying out the four pillars.
