February 12 Diversity, Learning and Student Success: Policy, Practice, Privilege will focus on student success interventions that hold the most promise for first-generation students, low-income students, and students from groups that traditionally have been poorly served in higher education. With an explicit focus on "making excellence inclusive," the conference also will explore the role of diversity in student success, examining—through research studies and model programs—culturally attentive student support initiatives that help increase student persistence and educational practices that prepare all students to navigate a pluralistic world. Sessions will feature evidence-based research and robust student success and diversity initiatives from all parts of higher education.
