SCCPA 2023 Equity and Inclusion graphic

Equity and Inclusion Institute:
“Where We Were, Where We Are, Where We’re Going”

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.

Our in-person event will take place on Friday, March 17, 2023 at Newberry College in Newberry, SC. This event is open to undergraduate students, graduate students, and professional staff members. Any individual in those categories with an interest in equity and inclusion within higher education are invited to attend.

Native American/Indigenous (Staff or Student): Free 

Undergraduate Student: $10

SCCPA Member (Graduate Student): $15

SCCPA Member (Staff): $20
