On January 22, 2016, NERCHE and Campus Compact of New Hampshire hosted a free webinar focusing on emerging practices, strategies for engaging campus leaders, and practical ways to expand diversity, equity, and inclusion on campuses.
The webinar provided an overview of Project Inclusion, a pilot initiative designed to encourage an assessment of the institutional structures, policies, and practices around diversity, equity, and inclusiveness in New Hampshire’s colleges and universities. The webinar highlighted ways in which the project’s four pilot sites–the University of New Hampshire, Antioch University of New England, Rivier University, and Keene State College–have applied NERCHE’s Self-Assessment Rubric for the Institutionalization of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in Higher Education. Panelists from the pilot sites discussed progress made in one or more dimensions of the rubric, their process leading toward institutional change, and key lessons learned.

Throughout the webinar, viewers posed a number of insightful questions about individual campus initiatives and about broader issues related to diversity, equity, and inclusion on college and university campuses. Though the panelists did not have time to answer all of the questions during the webinar Q&A session, NERCHE will make all of the questions and answers available on this site in the coming days.
