The Civic Engagement Meeting will bring campus leaders together to broaden our student engagement network, ask ourselves hard questions, and explore strategies to strengthen equity, inclusion, and academic achievement for all students.
Conversations around equity and inclusion are crucial as we work to meet the varied needs of both students and communities. But shifting the culture and changing the systems of higher education to improve educational equity does not happen overnight. We must persistently push to build our network and cross-pollinate the conversation with diverse ideas and lived experiences to ensure all voices are heard as we work to create an inclusive and equitable future. Join us for this great opportunity to network and converse with colleagues from around Washington!
