March 15 – Equity and Inclusion for the 1% (not that 1%): Student Veterans in Higher Education

Campus Compact Mountain West has been working with member campuses on an initiative called SECond Mission:Service|Education|Careers, an effort to support access to and success in higher education for Veterans and military-affiliated students. Though only 1% of Americans serve in the armed forces, college and university campuses have a robust population of students affiliated with the military due to the opportunities made available through the Post-911 GI Bill. This group of students is disproportionally nonwhite, living with a service-related disability, living in poverty, and earning less than their peers if they’re employed.

During this webinar, we will discuss the ways in which the academic support needs of military-affiliated students align with other groups of non-traditional and adult learners. We will also highlight the ways in which student Veteran support programs have borrowed from Safe Zone and other interventions developed for LGBTQ students. Finally, we will share specific program models from SECond Mission that have made demonstrable impacts on student Veteran persistence in higher education and integration into their local civilian communities.

 

April 10 – Engaging Immigrant Communities

Immigration is a national hot topic. During this webinar members of the Cal State East Bay community will share the responsive programs they created to engage the immigrant community and develop positive relationships across difference.

  • In 2014, when a surge in the number of unaccompanied minors immigrating to the United States from Central America created a need for more support of immigrant youth, CSUEB created an Immigrant Community Engagement course. During this course our students probe the dynamics of immigrant experiences and serve at immigrant supporting agencies.
  • In 2016-17 after a surge in federal immigration enforcement and arrests, 200+ campus employees and students have been trained to serve as allies to support the unique needs of undocumented students on campus. Our campus also hosted a CSU systemwide Undocumented Student Resource Summit.
  • In 2017-18 our campus and community common read is In the Country We Love: My Family Divided by Diane Guerrero, which tells the story of the author’s life after her parents were detained and deported while she was at school. Campus and community members will engage in structured conversations about immigration and engage in activities that will result in the update of the City of Hayward’s Anti-Discrimination Action Plan (ADAP).
