“RISEing” to success and well-being in post-secondary (E/SI)

April 27, 2021 | 1:15 - 2:00

Track: Wiring for Student Success

Safe, inclusive spaces are vital to students’ well-being and success. These intentional spaces are constructed before students enter post-secondary and as they transition into the institution through partnerships with agencies that support potential students and local school boards.

Inclusive spaces are co-created with students who face multiple barriers through relationship building, including listening to their narratives, and tailoring existing services to empower students to enter the classroom and life at college.

Through the lens of equity and inclusion and grounded in intersectionality, this workshop will explore the expressed needs of underrepresented students to feel encouraged to share their voice, empowered to self-advocate, find belonging in a community where they can bring all the parts of their identity and define and achieve success!
