#KAedchat – Supporting Our Nation’s Diverse Military-Connected Students Wednesday, February 15 - 6-7pm ET
Though scholarly inquiry has built a rich understanding of the intersections between lingering demographic and socioeconomic inequities and post secondary access, persistence, and attainment, the conversation has yet to encompass those with current or prior military service.
By examining points of similarity and difference among military-connected students, and drawing upon other facets of their holistic identities, the higher education community will have deeper insight on the challenges and successes of service members and veterans on our campuses.
In this chat, Dr. Morse will share and ask about points of similarity and difference by race/ethnicity and gender on key factors tied to post-secondary access, affordability, and debt, and draw intersections to our nation’s broader struggle to address inequities that linger along demographic lines.
Further, Morse will offer considerations for practice and scholarly inquiry to support access and inclusion for our nation’s diverse military-connected students.What strategies can practitioners take to support and acknowledge the needs of military connected students? Are there ways we can deliver services differently? Are there things that practitioners need to know/skills they need to have?
Join Andrew Morse and the @KeelingHigherEd team on Wednesday, February 15, from 6:00 to 7:00 pm ET to discuss how to better serve those who have so bravely served us.
