Leadership for Diversity and Inclusion
June 1, 2022
Presented in partnership with Cengage.
Racial and social justice issues are urgent priorities for colleges and universities. Campuses across the US and around the world are accelerating efforts to promote evidence-based reforms to make their institutions more equitable and inclusive for all students, staff, and faculty.
At this webinar, campus leaders from four different institutional contexts discussed practices that have worked to reduce equity gaps in higher education, improve inclusion and belonging for minoritized students, and promote diversity in hiring practices. Panelists are past recipients of the AAC&U-Cengage Inclusion Scholarship, who have been recognized for their outstanding leadership to advance equitable liberal education. They discussed leadership practices that can be employed by higher education leaders with various roles at institutions around the world.
In acknowledgment of AAC&U and Cengage’s shared commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, the AAC&U-Cengage Inclusion Scholarship is awarded annually to outstanding current campus presidents.
