Conversations with IRA: Exploring Equity in HBCU Assessment
Date: 11/16/2022 at 12:00 pm (EST)
Description: Equity-minded individuals are aware of the sociohistorical context of exclusionary practices and racism in higher education, particularly for Black, Latinx, and Indigenous communities. With HBCUs consistently & rightfully being acknowledged for outcomes of Black student learning, many well-intended institutional research and assessment professionals regularly look to HBCUs to mimic their assessment practices that are assumed to be equitable. However, just because you are Historically Black, doesn't mean you are Currently Equitable. This session will provide space for attendees to take a critical look at their campus' approach to equity, specifically in assessment. Challenging participants to practice what they preach, we will discuss designing an equitable assessment process (goals, policy, etc.), disaggregating data beyond race and ethnicity, and share the way we as HBCUs currently demonstrate equitable practices and offer suggestions to take it to the next level.
