Good morning from the College of Charleston. Thank you for hosting the conversation today
Tori Good
25:26
Hello from Converse College! Grateful for this opportunity and to see so many dedicated to this necessary education for our campuses.
Lori Brierre
25:52
The practice of forcing minority's particular black employees to "suck it up" continues.
Croslena Broadwater-Johnson
26:18
Good morning from Tri-County Technical College. Personally, I have experienced various emotions--hurt, anger, disappointment... but glad that so any people are becoming aware of these issues and doing something about it.
Carla Bennett
26:44
Good morning from Clemson, thanks for hosting this.
Selena Blair
29:03

Good-morning from Newberry College, in Newberry SC! As a new member of SA in Higher Ed. I am very grateful for the opportunity to be included in this conversation!
Cassie Mangum

I have felt angry that I had not been taught everything I should have been in early childhood education. I am certain it is one of the roots of reasoning that causes the unfair and unequal treatment of black lives. I feel that with the right education, others will understand why the Black Lives Matter movement is so important and change is needed!
Darlene Fink
31:07
Feeling shocked after the news report coming from the race car incident - after all that has already been brought to light prior to that
Jerad Green
31:17
Agreed Cassie! There are also important identity formation implications of providing a more holistic and accurate history. This reminds me of Dr. Beverly Tatum’s “Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria”
Todd Kamenash
35:38
I struggle with connecting with people who prominently display the confederate flag, refusing to acknowledge or respect how disrespectful, demeaning, and damaging it is. And yet they remain students, faculty, and staff at our institutions. What are some strategies in communicating with those who are willfully ignorant?
Cassie Mangum
36:07
I will add to my list of book to read Jerad!
Tony Cawthon
36:29
that is a great book Jerad
Jerad Green
36:31
Todd, I have noted your question for the panelists
Cassie Mangum
37:57
Great question Todd!
Rene Schmauder
40:00
I have a lot of work to do to educate myself to advocate for my friends and colleagues.
Altheia Richardson
44:07
Yes to budget showing institutional priorities!
Tony Cawthon
44:25
Always tell me class the budget reflects Dept or institution’s values
Yianna Kappas
44:28
Thank you to our panelists for making themselves available today. Dr. Hylton mentioned alumni - what is a way you (or others) have engaged alumni in this process? Further question, how have you been able to educate and engage alumni who may not be as “woke?”
Rudy Taylor
45:31
it was everyone
Marguerite O'Brien
47:34
Is anyone else having audio issues? This keeps breaking up.
Darlene Fink
47:37
still breaking up
Katie Maxwell
47:42
If participants can turn off their videos, that may help with any bandwidth issues we could be having.
KRYSSA COOPER
47:50
It keeps breaking up.
Michael O'Karma
48:01
Its probably a bandwidth problem - turning off camera normally helps.
Linda Blair
48:03
Yes, it's still breaking up.
Brittney Scurry
48:40
Perhaps the microphone is stealing Dr. Pratt's bandwidth
Dan Lewis
49:04
Jerad the audio seems to work well when you're unmuted. Strange but give it a shot.
Tony Cawthon
49:09
yes still breaking up for me
Jerad Green
49:14
I’ve seen that too Dan
Constancio Nakuma
49:21
To the panelists: How has this moment of worldwide expression of outrage influenced your respective institutions' DEI (diversity, equity and inclusion) priorities as reflected through policies and budgets?
Bobby Clark
57:23
Great to see you — Deborah— Bobby
Katie Maxwell
57:57
For everyone who has submitted questions, we have made a note of all of them and will get to as many as we are able. Thank you!
Deborah Allen
01:00:22
Hi Bobby! :)
Tony Cawthon
01:03:07
Wonder if any of the panelist might answer some of the questions in writing afterwards and those shared with participants
Altheia Richardson
01:06:09
Yes, campus culture is key to how fertile the ground is for some of these initiatives.
Altheia Richardson
01:06:36
Right now we are in crisis mode, but campus culture can be pervasive and outlive these moments of crisis.
Jerad Green
01:06:55
Good point Altheia!
Lamar Hylton
01:07:23
Very excellent point, Altheia!
Tierney Bates
01:08:09

Altheia Richardson

You can also tell a lot about an institutions priorities around DEI by looking at the demographic make-up of the leadership.
Tierney Bates
01:08:50
Leadership at the C-Suite outside the CDO
Tierney Bates
01:08:56

Speaks to our socialization beyond our institutions. How have families, k-12 schools, churches, communities, and media reinforced certain messages or ideas about symbols
Altheia Richardson
01:12:02
Yes, Jerad.
Altheia Richardson
01:12:36
That socialization can happen in many different spaces.

For Panelist, can you discuss how to address the most common policies you've encountered that disadvantage or negatively impact our students of color and strategies you've developed to dismantle or productively address those policies?
Tony Cawthon
01:13:34
can we do a part two
Tierney Bates
01:13:40
Look forward January for SCCPA and the DEI conference sign up! more HEAT...coming
Rene Schmauder
01:14:21
How have you had success in engaging students who are resistant to study of ideas outside of their own experience?
Katie Maxwell
01:14:36
Yes, Tony- we are going to look into possible future sessions to continue the conversation!
