Student Affairs Certificate Program

Social Justice Innovation

June 4 – 7, 2018

Prevailing student affairs practices are not sufficient to advance social justice within and beyond our colleges and universities. The summer 2018 Emory Higher Education Institute Student Affairs Certificate Program will focus on helping participants identify and leverage their institution’s strengths to develop innovative frameworks, strategies, policies, and programs to address issues of access, diversity, inclusion, equity, and social justice.

Innovation is more than a eureka moment: It is a process that includes identifying issues and opportunities, gathering data, getting the right people in the room, testing, implementing, and assessing. Over four days, EHEI facilitators will share their experiments in applied innovation, lead participants in innovation-generating exercises to bring back to their schools, and help participants develop social justice strategies congruent with their institution’s values, contexts, and resources. Student Affairs Vice Presidents from diverse institutions will share case studies from their own careers and provide feedback to participants as they develop innovations.
