Presentations, videos, and additional resources from the Tipping Point Student Success Summit are now available on the Tipping Point website. Thanks to all the outstanding presenters for providing these materials. The two most prominent areas of interest coming out of the Summit were inclusive student engagement and becoming a healing-centered campus.

Please consider the following two upcoming opportunities for faculty and staff to learn more about these topics:

The Engaged and Inclusive Educator, April 11, 12:00-1:30 PM, BMU 210

This is the second session in the College of Communication and Education’s Take Time for Teaching (T3), Brown Bag Series. Award winning College of Communication and Education faculty from Communication Arts & Sciences and the School of Education who are charting new paths in education will be sharing their best practices for inclusive and engaged pedagogy. This informal discussion will include universal design for learning principles and community engagement activities that are applicable across all disciplines. Faculty presenters Jamie Gunderson, Tal Slemrod, and Sue Peterson will share tools and tips designed to promote equity across race, gender, sexuality, language, class, and to create conditions where all students can thrive within and beyond the walls of the classroom. They will be joined by students who will be demonstrating how these practices work on the ground.
