Institutions need innovative student engagement strategies that cultivate collaborative governance in order to reflect changing learning paradigms and evolving societal needs, including recent pandemic-fueled inequities. This session will share diverse planner, leadership, faculty, and student perspectives on engagement and collaboration at North Orange County Community College. Join our panel to discuss how traditionally underserved students are reshaping higher education and gain tools and solutions that you can apply to engagement efforts on your campus.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Discuss strategies, analytics, and initiatives that you can use to address the cultural, social, economic, and political forces that influence student access and equity in higher education.
  2. Align current student needs with your institutional mission and values by measuring stakeholder performance data against institutional priorities.
  3. Think outside-the-box to advance new tools, collaborations, and partnership opportunities while leveraging your individual role at your institution to influence positive change.
  4. Outline the basics for creating an outreach and communications plan as well as tactical planning skills for translating vision and values into strategic and tactical plans.
