Overview

Justice Scale Graphic

As an administrator or business office staff member, how do you address the diverse needs of all students on campus? Equity in the business office (or back office) and supporting the outcomes of students of all backgrounds and abilities is essential to a successful college experience, promotes completion and supports a healthy campus environment.

Through a framework of social justice, Trinice McNally—founding director of the Center for Diversity, Inclusion and Multicultural Affairs at University of the District of Columbia—will walk attendees through systems and processes with an equity lens which helps us acknowledge the existence and causes of systemic inequity in higher education.

The discussion will provide opportunities for transparent, honest, and consistent use of an equity lens to enable staff to create a culture of accountability and empower all members of the campus business office.

This webcast is part of a series supported by the Ascendium Higher Education grant.
