February marks Black History Month, presenting a welcome opportunity to bring attention to the incredible work of our Black Caucus. With over eighty members, this is one of our largest caucuses, and open to any member interested in advancing the black community in all aspects of higher education. Caucus Chair Kristy Goodwin, Director of the College Pathways Program at Governors State University, is passionate about mentoring and purpose. Goodwin hosted this month’s book club discussion. Keep an eye out for her blog reflection that will be out next week.
AACRAO will be promoting our Black Caucus members throughout the month—follow our social media channels (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn) to see the excellent work your fellow members are doing at their institutions to break down barriers and pave roads for access, and visit the caucus page for member profiles.
We are currently highlighting the work of Cassandra Moore, Director of Enrollment Development & Admissions at Anne Arundel Community College. Moore is a champion of diversity, access, and inclusion on her campus, with various activities and professional development opportunities organized throughout the month. Later this month, Moore will also be featured in the newest episode of For The Record, our registrar podcast, covering how the registrar can be an advocate of equity and inclusion. Join the list to be the first to know when it drops.
