Coffee Break | 3:00-4:00 pm ET
Strategic enrollment management integrates all assets of a college or university including its people and their functions to fulfill the institution’s mission towards student success. More than anything else, SEM centers on establishing and maintaining
connections. Connecting students with the institution, faculty and staff; connecting faculty and staff with each other and connecting other stakeholders who can help expand student experiences during and beyond their college career. Therefore, it
is not surprising that a core principle of SEM revolves around increasing access and growing inclusion. Considering the multiple identifying groups that describe the diversity of students, faculty and staff, panelists will share their equity perspectives
and programs developed to weave the connections to create inclusive communities in higher education.
Learn more about the significance of the SEM principle on access and inclusion, the diversity, equity and inclusion thread in SEM, high impact practices and their influence on first generation and low-income students, SEM leadership practices with
engaging an indigenous student population and the relevance of cultural competencies in higher education.
Join us on 12/10/2021 at 3:00 pm for a Coffee Break discussion on SEM access and inclusion practices led by co-authors of SEM as a Connector,
Susan Gottheil, Stanley Henderson, Kizzy Morris and Dr. Anne Thurmer, along with education cultural competency advocate, Dr. Donna-Marie Cole-Malott.
