• Highlights from the 2022 Accreditation Resource Conference

    April 26, 2022 - WSCUC

WSCUC’s ARC 2022 explored what it really means to put equity and excellence into action to achieve meaningful outcomes for students. In addition to a wide and deep range of concurrent sessions and workshops, Dr. Clint Smith, whose book How the Word is Passed: A Reckoning with the History of Slavery Across America delivered a stirring opening plenary telling how some of our country’s most essential stories are hidden in plain view. A panel conversation on the second day led by Dr. Amelia Parnell, author of You Are a Data Person: Strategies for Using Analytics on Campus, discussed how we can all use data in our everyday work and contribute to important discussions across the institution. The final plenary panel featured effective leaders in very different roles shared questions, insights, mindsets, strategies, and alliances that will help us all lead constructive change, whatever our job description.
