"Fostering Student Engagement through an Equity Lens" 

Stephen Quaye, Ph.D. 

The purpose of this talk is to distinguish between involvement and engagement in order to foster student success. Participants will also learn how to use an equity lens to reflect on their teaching practices to ensure that they are grounded in equity and support the needs of students with minoritized identities.
