A six-part webinar series to demonstrate new approaches to cultivating diversity and equity in the college admission process and enhance conversations among college admission counseling professionals to prepare for a possible adverse ruling from the Supreme Court in the SFFA v. Harvard/UNC race-conscious admission cases. The webinar series is designed to share research-informed, promising practices from institutions and schools, including a focus on practices in states currently practicing “race-neutral” admissions. A curricular guide will be provided, including segments from The Playbook (2d ed.); relevant amicus briefs filed before the U.S. Supreme Court (filed by the University of Michigan and UC System Leaders); and published research reports (to be named).
Webinar 5: Imagining What’s Possible – Rethinking how we assess student potential (RCA)
Experts in the use of performance-based assessments, a new and more finely calibrated form of assessing student work in K-12 education, will share an overview of PBAs and demonstrate examples of how to utilize these measures in college admission in service to greater equity.
