Closing Equity Gaps for Student Success

Mar 8, 2023

4:00pm – 5:00pm CT

The Student Success Equity Intensive is a comprehensive initiative to close equity gaps for Black, Latinx, Indigenous, and low-income students to ensure that race and socioeconomic status are no longer predictors of student success. This panel of higher education leaders and our colleague from Bill & Melinda Gates foundation will discuss what we have learned about the imperative to address systemic racism and dismantle the barriers to equitable student outcomes and share actionable strategies.
