Virtual Think Tank: Linking Campus Priorities: Connecting Student Success to Diversity, Inclusion, and Public Engagement
As part of the New England Resource for Higher Education's Virtual Think Tank series focusing on supporting the success of underserved students, this session "offer[ed] a new institutional framework for integrating diversity and equity, publicly engaged scholarship, and student success initiatives with each other and with higher education’s core values. "
Susan Sturm, director of the Center for Institutional and Social Change, and Tim Eatman, co-director of Imagining America, described the building of an architecture of full participation on campus—a process for building these values and practices into the hardwiring of institutions to enable people, whatever their identities or institutional positions, to realize their capabilities." They shared narratives of individual publicly engaged scholars and institutional/community partnerships that actively engage in advancing full participation and connected these examples to a broader theory of action. They also showed how this framework is responsive to the legal risks exemplified by the Fisher case -- the affirmative action case currently before the Supreme Court.
