Friday Institute for Educational Innovation at North Carolina State University
1890 Main Campus Dr, Raleigh, NC 27606
co-sponsored by: Belk Center for Community College Leadership and Research at North Carolina State University
Two-year colleges have historically served students who have often been excluded from other institutions of higher education. Part of the mission of two-year colleges has been in providing economic mobility to the communities we serve by changing individual lives for collective good. The impact of the learning facilitated through our practices (both in and out of the classroom) is rooted in equity and opportunity. This conference is designed to facilitate conversations about how two-year colleges support equitable outcomes for your students' success. Special attention will be given to the role student affairs / services has in meeting these goals.
