Equity Conference

On October 25 and 26, 2018, the Florida College System (FCS), in partnership with the College of Central Florida, will be hosting the 2018 Annual Equity Conference in Ocala, FL. The purpose of this year’s conference is to empower and equip FCS equity, campus safety and disability officers with the knowledge necessary to foster student achievement and promote equitable opportunities for all students. Representatives from Florida’s 28 colleges will discuss and analyze national and statewide data trends on student completion and attainment disaggregated by student demographic characteristics; learn from other Florida College System institutions that have successfully implemented systematic approaches to achieving equity, campus safety and civil rights on their individual campuses; address student needs to overcome barriers such as food and housing insecurities; and, increase the success of underrepresented students in developmental education and gateway courses. Participants will hear from national and statewide speakers and be given opportunity to work in a collaborative group setting to develop action-plans specific to positions and campuses. For further information, please contact Dr. Angela Long, Director of Learning, Innovation, and Success at 850-245-9481 or via email at angela.long@fldoe.org.
