Educational Equity in Action: Unlocking the Power of a Policy (E/SI)

May 7, 2019 | 09:45 - 10:30

Location: 201-202
Track: Student Success

Educational Equity is a key lever to transform college education as we know it. Nova Scotia Community College has articulated a clear commitment to developing and delivering an equitable student journey throughout our programs and services with a focus on much more than just access to education.

Come and learn more about our recently approved Educational Equity Policy – the first of its kind in Atlantic Canada – and our powerful vision for a responsive equity-driven academic experience. This work requires us to reflect deeply as we mobilize to embed equity into the key tenets of our academic experience which includes teaching practices, curriculum design, student services, and more.

We will openly discuss our successes and challenges, and share some of the unconventional ways the policy is coming to life – such as inspiring teaching innovation and assisting in the resolution of complex student and organizational issues. Join us to learn more about how we embrace equity as a key driver of student success and organizational excellence through an interactive dialogue about how educational equity can be used to inspire a new way of thinking and doing at college.
