This presentation, led by Mark Williams, assistant professor at the Community College of Baltimore County, addressed the current and sometimes difficult conversation concerning the complexity of equity and its potential impact on implementing effective student support programs. This session provided an overview of background research on high impact practices and guided pathways as they relate to equity and provided a deeper understanding of equity’s role in designing effective high impact practices. The concept of equity as it relates to engaging students to participate in academic success and support programs was discussed, as well as how to design effective student engagement practices and an equity-minded approach in successful intervention programs.
