Meet ELSEE Cohort Three!
Now in its their year, the Executive Learning Series on Equity and Empowerment launches again at the end of September!
Teams of faculty, staff and students from these five institutions join together on a year-long exploration of how higher education can transform outcomes for students, faculty, and staff of color as well as create more inclusive environments which benefit all students. By using an equity and empowerment lens to critically analyze our decision making processes, programs, investments, and individual capacities for change, Campus Compact works to increase capacity of all participants to lead equity efforts.
