Representatives of more than twenty campuses across Massachusetts will gather at Bridgewater State University on March 30 for the Leading for Change Diversity Consortium meeting. The consortium enables members to share best practices in educating our diverse student population and to track success on a number of diffferent metrics, including retention and graduation rates, composition of campus workforce, and campus climate. The Consortium believes in data-driven work and shares ways of benchmarking and collecting the data that will enable us to reach students from all populations in the most effective ways.
The consortium hopes to join the Cross-Sector Partnership for mentoring and for education in culturaly inclusive pedagogy, aimed at reaching all of our students in the Commonwealth.
Check out the Consortium’s activities and think about the ways you could get involved in learning best practices in diversity work on your campus or through the Consortium.
The Leading for Change Higher Education Diversity Consortium is a voluntary collaboration of institutions of higher education in Massachusetts and the greater New England region committed to identifying student and employee diversity best practices through uniform and transparent use of data, institutional benchmarks, and reflective practice.
