Becoming a more student-ready campus means having a better understanding of an institution's data and its students, and planning for this initiative must align with university strategic and enrollment goals.
That was the message from Tia Brown McNair, vice president for Diversity, Equity and Student Success at the American Association of Colleges and Universities, who opened the 28th annual Fall Conference on Teaching and Learning by leading participants through a blueprint to a more student-ready campus. She noted all faculty and staff can play a key role in this goal.
McNair spoke August 24 at the Eberhard Center at the conference sponsored by the Pew Faculty Teaching and Learning Center. Her remarks were inspired by her book, "Becoming a Student-Ready College: A New Culture of Leadership for Student Success."
