Equity and Inclusion Institute: Prioritizing and Progressing

The South Carolina College Personnel Association’s Equity and Inclusion Institute aims to engage participants in critical dialogue and action around topics of equity and inclusion within higher education. SCCPA strives to be inclusive and reflective of identities including: age, culture, disability/accessibility, race and ethnicity, religion/spirituality and worldview, socioeconomic and veteran status, gender and  gender expression, geographic background, sex, nationality, first generation status, and familial status. 

Our goal is for participants to apply their learning to enhance their institutional/organizational climates around equity and inclusion.

In this climate of campus change, we must strive to ensure that all voices can be heard and that we are an informed and invested part of the dialogue. Register today to be a part of the conversation.

As of now, the event is planned to occur in-person on Friday, March 4, 2022 at Columbia College in Columbia, SC. SCCPA is actively keeping up with COVID-19 case numbers and concerns and will transition the Institute to be fully virtual if we deem the in-person experience to be unsafe. Physical distancing and safety protocols will be enforced throughout the entirety of the event if it remains as in-person. 

Institute costs are low:

Native American/Indigenous (Staff or Student): Free 

Undergraduate Student: $10

SCCPA Member (Graduate Student): $15

SCCPA Member (Staff): $20

SCCPA Non-Member Fee (Professional and Graduate Student): $30

We hope you will attend this institute. If you are not currently a member of SCCPA and would like to re-join, you may do so here. If you are interested in potentially presenting at the Institute or have any other questions, you may contact SCCPA’s Director of Equity and Inclusion, Briahnna Ismail, at [email protected]
