SUNY Brockport Joins National Initiative to Close Equity Gaps & Boost Student Success

Please look for a survey, which will be distributed November 27, that will aid our efforts and inform our next steps.

SUNY Brockport is one of 18 institutions that are part of the third cohort of the Student Success Equity Intensive (SSEI), aimed at closing the equity gaps of Black, Latinx, Indigenous, and low-income students.

This is an initiative of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU) and is supported by funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

The comprehensive, team-based effort is designed to accelerate institutional transformation with the help of customized and data-informed decisions grounded in students’ realities. Campus leaders work as a cohort and learn promising practices to close equity gaps and achieve student success goals for Black, Latinx, Indigenous, and low-income students to ensure that race and income are no longer predictors of success.

Some of you will receive an invitation to complete a survey for this initiative beginning November 27. We ask that you please set aside some time to complete this survey. Gathering this information is an important part of the Student Success Equity Intensive, and we greatly appreciate your participation. The survey closes December 15.

The SSEI cohort approach involves peer-to-peer learning across institutions via in-person and virtual Student Success Academies. Participants will have access to resources, such as online modules and webinars, and receive support from subject matter experts in data analytics, equity, student success, advising, institutional transformation, and strategic and systems planning.
