Real Talk: Admissions/Advising Professionals Reflect on Inequity
2020 brought about many changes for those with an eye on college admissions. Suddenly, college visits became virtual and college campuses obsolete. ACT/SAT requirements were waived for the class of 2021 and for others, waived altogether. What do all of these changes mean for scholarships? For college placement? For acceptance into a students' college of choice? We discuss this ever-changing landscape with professionals from across the country.Register Now: Feb. 25, 3pm CST
Real Talk: Student Athlete and Coaches Reflect on Inequity
“Perhaps nowhere in higher education is the disenfranchisement of Black male students more insidious than in college athletics” - Shaun R. Harper, 2006. Scholars who study race in intercollegiate athletics will probably deem unsurprising recent findings on racial inequities in six-year graduation rates. These trends are so pervasive, yet institutional leaders, the NCAA, and athletics conference commissioners have yet to address inequities in a meaningful way. Together we discuss student and coach experiences across recent history, as well as the trajectory going forward.Register Now: March 11, 3pm CST
