Description

Far too often we mistake our proximity for advocacy. Our proximity to people, spaces, and populations is not an automatic transmission to our advocacy for the same group. It is imperative for institutions and academic leaders to shift from the mindset of proximity equals advocacy. True advocacy requires a commitment to addressing structural and systemic issues that often create barriers for first-generation college students and other underserved populations including students of color, students from working class families, and more. Over the years, institutions have created pathways to access but have not made the same commitment to ensuring first-generation college students get the maximum benefit from being at the institution. Join Dr. Whitnee Boyd as she shares how to move beyond proximity through access to advocacy.
