Building Institutional Infrastructure to Support
September 14, 2021
2:00 to 3:00PM Eastern
The recent crisis of COVID-19 and the social unrest in the country has underscored the inequities in the American society. The racial inequities in higher education has prompted educational institutions to seize the unique opportunity to address the inequities and have a significant impact on the lives of communities of color. As institutions rethink their DEI vision and strategies, they are finding it necessary to approach this work as mission critical and infused across the campus community. However, institutionalizing DEI vison and practices and embracing equity-minded approaches across the board require a certain kind of institutional infrastructure to support DEI efforts. What does that infrastructure looks like in regard to the people, process, and tools at an institution? This panel will explore this question where panelists will share learnings from their institutional DEI initiatives, challenges, and success stories.
