About the Event
In partnership with the Alliance for Higher Education in Prison, Ed Trust is hosting our second of three institutes which delve into racial equity issues faced by incarcerated and formerly incarcerated students. The institutes are designed to connect emerging leaders and help them improve learning for systems-impacted populations on campus and in prison and equip higher education leaders with first-hand knowledge and insight from the field. We invite institutional leaders, faculty members, program administrators, advocates, and students to attend and explore a variety of topics including equity in enrollment and completion for justice-impacted students, faculty/staff diversity, culturally responsive pedagogy, and others.
Building on the first institute which centered on ensuring equity in Pell restoration implementation, the second institute will focus on building the skills to address advocacy, access, and accountability. Participants in the September institute will learn from expert staff, faculty, systems-impacted individuals, and state leaders, and engage in a facilitated dialogue to create actionable strategies for their work.
