Moving Equity Beyond Data Inquiry

Speakers: Dr. Marci Rockey, Chaddrick James-Gallaway, Brandi Neal, Dr. Eboni Zamani-Gallaher

Four scholars from the Office of Community College Research and Leadership at Illinois will discuss in this talk a study that was conducted to understand the process by which community college practitioners who engage in an outcomes-focused, equity-guided process utilized disaggregated data to advance equity-guided change at their institutions.

The process required teams to engage stakeholders, analyze disaggregated data to identify equity gaps, explore related institutional processes and practices, and identify solutions for improvement and evaluation. Participation was identified as cultivating equity-mindedness for those directly engaged with the process. Despite limitations to institutionalization, the establishment of collaborative partnerships provided opportunities for meaningful change.

This talk will take place during the Minority Serving Institution Convening. The theme of this year's event is "Minority Student Success: Using Data to Effect Change."
