The 2017 C3 Summit comes to a close today, but that doesn’t mean the schedule is slowing down!
Mark Kamimura-Jiménez, Assistant Dean for Programs, Policy, and Diversity Initiatives at University of Michigan, started the morning by facilitating Give and Take: Promising Practices on Campus. Referring to this working session as a “group crowdsourcing of ideas,” he asked participants to identify the most impactful programs on their campuses, talk through new ideas and how to strengthen them, and share their findings with others.
Kamimura-Jiménez shared links to guiding questions that can be used to start these conversations in other settings. Part 1 emphasizes the goals, implementation, assessment, and outcomes of a promising diversity practice. Part 2 encourages group discussion of a new or in-progress idea.
New connections were made last night at the 2017 C3 Summit, hosted by Williams College. The event continues through the weekend with a full slate of speakers and panels addressing this year’s theme, The Transformative Power of Race in the Academy: Measuring Change, Charting Futures.
