    COVID-19: A Teachable Moment

    COVID-19: A Teachable Moment

    College campuses are part of their larger communities, which positions them to be leaders during times of crisis. The border of the college facilities does not isolate itself from what is taking place beyond the gates into the surrounding community. In fact, Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans (2005), The Camp Fire in Chico, California (2018) and COVID 19 (2020) are historical catastrophes affecting the university in unprecedented ways and they have stepped up to during these critical moments.
    The resilience of the faculty, staff and students at California State University, Monterey Bay during COVID 19 is evidence to how faculty and students leaned into this extremely traumatic event to become a teachable moment.

    Mind the Gap: Going beyond diversity and rethinking inclusion

    Mind the Gap: Going beyond diversity and rethinking inclusion

    Whereas there is ample evidence of persistent equity gaps across the education pipeline, successfully closing the gap has thus far eluded higher education leaders and policy makers. What do we know about what works, what are emerging best practices, and why are equity gaps so stubborn?
    Higher Ed Rewired spoke with postsecondary education researchers, Dr. Frank Harris III and Dr. Eric Felix of San Diego State University Community College Equity Assessment Lab, to discuss their research and recommendations on what is required to  close equity gaps. We also dive into the work at Pasadena City College that has driven institutional change by looking beyond diversity and rethinking inclusion for their 27,000 students.

These episodes offer so more than updates on what’s happening in CSU institutions. Thanks for also highlighting the stories of (and from) students & faculty. I look forward to future episodes...
