Upcoming Events

  • NACADA Webinar - Academic Advising and Trans Equity: Building Our Tomorrow

    Wednesday 11 December 2019
    Online

    This webinar will focus on encouraging practitioners to identify opportunities for trans advocacy work on their campuses. The presenters aim to move beyond a “Trans 101” perspective by focusing less on vocabulary and issues of awareness and directing the bulk of their effort toward identifying changes in behavior (individual) and culture (organizational) that could have the effect of increasing trans equity on campus. This webinar embeds trans concerns in frameworks of social justice advocacy and multicultural organizational change theory with the aim of presenting social justice as a process to engage in, rather than simply an end point or goal.

  • Supporting International Students in Personal Tutorials
