11:15 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. - NADOHE Closing Keynote Presentation: The Equity Imperative: Make America Just
Presented by: Estela Mara Bensimon, Director and Professor
Higher education leaders and policymakers have been reluctant to embrace racial equity in educational outcomes as an institutional responsibility but in the last few years we have experienced a shift in practices and language that indicate greater acceptance of racial equity as a legitimate and essential goal. But in the current political environment racial equity as a goal is seriously threatened and the work of equity and diversity advocates will become even more challenging. In her talk, Professor Bensimon will discuss the ways in which diversity leaders can provide moral and educational leadership to advance the equity agenda within their campuses.
12:30 p.m. - 12:45 p.m. - Conference Closing Remarks
