Who are we?
...individuals who are more cognizant that exclusionary practices, institutional racism, and power asymmetries impact opportunities and outcomes for [under-represented] students. Equity-minded individuals attribute unequal outcomes among [under-represented students] to institution-based dysfunctions, while deficit-minded individuals construe unequal outcomes as originating from student characteristics. Thus equity-minded individuals reflect on their own and their colleagues' role in and responsibility for student success (Bensimon, 2006, p. 446).
Equity-Minded practitioners are...

2.5 day curriculum; 8 hrs./day

183 student participants, groups of 3-5 with a professional staff facilitator

Large lecture for large concepts with facilitated breakout groups for intimate discussion and interaction with the material

The intimacy of the small group, the types of questions, and the activities were what factors in what made this “experiential”

Progressively personal interaction with the material: Started with broad concepts of socialization, dug deeper to observation, dug deeper to personal experience and story sharing, then moved toward liberation and into commitment statements

Set up framework of “equity” and “equity-minded”

Cognitive Complexity

450 unique respondents over four years:

* 75% stated that they learned a "moderate" to a "considerable amount" during the workshop

* >50% reported feeling more comfortable talking about equity-minded issues with peers and other community members

* >50% reported that they were able to collaborate more effectively with a wider variety of people

* >40% reported that they were able to seek out, form, and maintain healthy relationships with a wider variety of people after attending the workshop

* >40% reported that they were able to put their knowledge to work in student-led seminars and peer education efforts

* Participants who attended the annual EME workshop 2+ times not only reported learning a significant amount more during each subsequent EME workshop, but also demonstrated differential growth from their same-aged peers when a moral development framework was applied to the short answer portions of their workshop questionnaires

Transformational Change
Examples of EME Across Campus
Campus-wide programming models might look a little different, however all require an EME component
* Mixed methods
* Gradual move from satisfaction/feedback to learning
* Voluntary until 2014
* Lots of variation in surveys & instruments
* Now using Socially Responsible Leadership Scale
* No pre/post until 2014, but always a post
* We have had over 450 responses

Faculty and staff involvement matters
Cultivate environments that challenge
intellectual AND interpersonal growth
Foster and encourage peer to peer
Engage and support interdisciplinary cross-training for faculty/staff to encourage equity-minded practices in and out of the classroom
Utilize faculty/staff as facilitators to provide direct links between academic and social community development
Promote faculty/staff engagement as keynote speakers to provide a glimpse into their research/positions and how the participants can connect to the faculty/staff as resources
Provide structure and skill building for a more equity-minded campus community
Develop a new perspective which engages critical thinking and equity-minded problem solving in their role as a student leader
Utilize social media and current stories to engage students in a critical analysis of society today and to promote continual self-growth and development
Educate and train students to nurture equity-mindedness in and out of classroom setting
Provide formal or informal assessment and feedback for students
It has given us the opportunity to foster an environment where this topic is embraced by our community. It is exciting to witness an idea flourish into an accomplishment that has exceeded our expectations in regard to its impact on our community. We are proud of the foundation set for transformational change that will last for years to come.

* There were some significant differences / movement in individual categories: consciousness of self, commitment, collaboration, and common purpose all moved + 0.18 - 0.26

* The next steps will be looking at individual respondent's scores overall and in each section. For those who moved one way or another, supporting or contradicting data may also exist in short-answer questions. We will also be administering the survey at the end of the academic year and comparing the pre, post, and end-of-year results

* We are cautiously optimistic that our previous data coupled with ongoing administration of SRLS-v2 will show that attending the EME workshop is positively correlated with increased equity-mindedness and practice of equity-related behaviors in our student leaders
