    Deborah Martinez, Zefora Ortiz

    Creating Community for Foster Youth on College Campuses: Effective Strategies for Academic Success

    Foster youth are among the most underrepresented student populations on college campuses. Data reveals 84% of foster youth want to attend college, yet it is estimated that only 1-11% of them graduate from college. Why is this so? In this panel presentation, attendees will learn causes of this abysmal statistic and how their campuses can best serve foster youth to ensure better educational outcomes.

    Student Engagement: An Indelible Impact at the Community College in year ONE

    Tyson Beale, Helene Cameron

    Student Engagement: An Indelible Impact at the Community College in year ONE

    Maximizing student success in alignment with engagement is a known challenge among community colleges. The influence of student engagement on retention, completion and satisfaction creates an opportunity to re-imagine our structural complexities, reform policies, and re-define our practices (McClenney, 2007). While the diverse populations that mark community colleges offer unique challenges, they also provide a pathway to revisit our student life missions and tactics. The presenters will review viable engagement practices and recommendations for institutional development.

    Adapting Evidence-Informed Approaches: Challenges and Opportunities for Violence Prevention at Commuter Schools

Further, historically marginalized and underserved populations at community colleges and other commuter schools experience unique challenges and opportunities for prevention. This presentation will provide an overview of evidence-based prevention strategies, the different needs of two and four-year college students, and strategies for addressing these needs using a multi-method, ecological approach to violence prevention.

    Understanding How Students Develop Multicultural Consciousness

    Shannon Dean, Lauren Loper, Luis Robles, Amanda Martindale, Victoria Carrillo, Quynh-Huong Nygen, Sean Hembrick

    Understanding How Students Develop Multicultural Consciousness

    Multicultural competence is something espoused in higher education; yet, multicultural consciousness is a more accurate goal for student development. But how do students actually develop a greater understanding of themselves and others? By discussing students "aha" moments around gender, sexual orientation, and race, presenters will identify ways that students develop multicultural consciousness from a research and student perspective. Participants will also engage in discussions around how to foster development among students on their campuses.

    The Right to Vs. the Right Thing: Creating Balance Between Free Speech and Safe Spaces on Campus

    Michael Preston, David Oglethorpe

    The Right to Vs. the Right Thing: Creating Balance Between Free Speech and Safe Spaces on Campus

    The debate between the need for safe spaces versus the right to free expression has reached third rail status. To take a position at all between unfettered speech and immediate appeals to emotional safety is an invitation to cut short your career. It has not always been that way, college campuses have a rich history of speech interactions that were uncomfortable. This session will chronicle the history of campus speech protections and examine one campus's efforts to help safe spaces and free expression coexist without the imperative everyone play nice.
