In this interactive session, panelists will reflect on initiatives that required collaboration across departments, and reflect on the challenges and lessons learned throughout the process. This is a follow-up session to the 2021 session “Whose Job is it Anyway? The Role of the Registrar in Diversity & Inclusion.” Returning attendees will be asked to share how their roles may have changed in the last year, and share their own successes related to DEI initiatives.
Some areas of focus will include access and affordability, recruitment and retention of underrepresented populations, services to distinct and/or non-traditional populations (including but not limited to persons of color, veterans, LGBT, native populations, and students with disabilities), coalition building, and the emotional burdens of the “second shift.” Some areas of focus for our presentation will be: Assessing your campus and making a plan; the Registrar as a driving force for distribution of surveys and integration with student data, getting campus buy-in, scheduling hurdles, and engaging speakers; The Registrar as a coalition builder between faculty and students while managing logistics of student schedules; Beyond recruitment and retention; Registrars and their role in supporting operations and developing a strategic plan; When it's all brand new, how do you start?; How we can use AACRAO resources, Caucuses, Literature, local community resources, professional community to support in implementing change in your small institution.
The session seeks to equip participants with practical applications to enact at their home institutions, regardless of institutional type. By the end of the session, participants should come out with a list of ideas and resources they can bring back and help energize them for the task ahead.
