Advancing Equity in a Climate of Resistance: Aligning Culture and Strategy-Dr. Frank Harris III

Tuesday, March 30, 2021 - 3:00pm to 4:30pm


Although the concepts of “equity” and “equity mindedness” are more widely embraced by educators now than they were a decade ago, closing equity gaps remains an elusive goal at most colleges and universities. Thus, in this address, the presenter will unpack the myriad of institutional barriers that thwart systematic efforts to close equity gaps. In addition, he will propose intentional strategies to be enacted by college educators to move equity efforts forward despite these barriers. The insights of this presentation will be derived from the presenter’s experiences in working with colleges and universities across the United States in a range of equity-related efforts and initiatives.
