Participants will have an opportunity to join us for live webinars and for an on-campus summit. Register for as many events as you are able to attend.

Webinar 1 will be held on February 21, 2019 at 2:00 pm EST. Ana Hernández Kent, Ph.D. will be discussing how inherited demographic characteristics like race/ethnicity, age and birth year, and parents’ education are related to income and wealth; if college is still worth it; how economic security varies by race; and what can be done about it.

The Race and Economic Equity Summit will be held on March 5, 2019 from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm at the Russell J. Salvatore Dining Commons. The summit consists of two panels, each tackling key issues surrounding racial equity. Each panel includes one keynote presentation from an expert on the topic, comments from three respondents, and audience table talk and report backs. This is an interactive and action planning summit. A hot lunch, a coffee break, and a closing reception will be provided.

Webinar 2 will be held on April 18, 2019 at 2:00 pm EST. Daniel Schneider, Ph.D. will be discussing how to create measurable outcomes and understand what will be measured to evaluate the progress of institutional change.
