Equity and Inclusion Institute

SCCPA Equity & Inclusion Institute Graphic

Registration is OPEN for SCCPA’s Equity and Inclusion Institute! Our theme this year is “Prioritizing and Progressing”. It is abundantly important to keep Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Access (DEIA) as central, prioritized thoughts in all aspects of higher education. Our goal is for participants to apply their learning from the Institute to enhance their institutional and organizational climates. You may register here:

Additionally, we are now accepting presentation proposals! You may present on any aspect of DEIA that you are passionate about. Submit your presentation proposal here:

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

Contact SCCPA’s Director of Equity and Inclusion, Briahnna Ismail, with any questions at [email protected]
