(Why We Should) Mind the Gap! Equity in Learning and Success
Of the nearly 1000 institutions in the US categorized as community colleges, SJR State was recently named to the Top 150 by the Aspen Institute, so we are clearly doing many things right. But when our student data is disaggregated by socioeconomic status, age, gender, and race/ethnicity, long-time gaps in student learning and success become obvious. In this presentation, we will dig into our data--both the successes and the ongoing challenges; consider the data relative to the success of other institutions in Florida and nationwide; discuss best practices proven to bridge these gaps; and together begin developing an action plan for SJR State. Once you see the data for yourself, I am confident that you, too, will mind the gap!
