Sep 1, 2020

In today’s episode, we bring you Part 1 of a very special Classified Professional Development Day keynote speech by Dr. Frank Harris III on “the critical role of classified professionals in student success and achieving institutional equity.”   
Classified professionals are likely to not only be the first point of contact for new students but also the ones to to engage with them in a moment of crisis, or provide connection, encouragement and support that is often critical in whether a student takes that next step in their education.

We spend some time becoming aware of what stage of growth we are at within our OWN education around equity, how to hold each other accountable and what we can start to pay attention to in order to become better advocates for the student. The challenges that we continually address like basic needs support and digital equity are now escalated during this time of the Corona Virus pandemic and if you didn't get to attend CPD Day, Part One of Dr. Harris' talk can help us all begin to reassess what it means to be equity minded during this time. Enjoy.
