While communicating with students poses its own challenges, overcoming those barriers and reaching out to underrepresented students is an integral part of higher education. Students of color have been disproportionately impacted by COVID and the increasing levels of social unrest in 2020. These add heavy burdens on these students not only physically and emotionally, but also can impede them from attending and completing higher education degrees. This is why it is especially urgent to implement personalized and relationship-oriented communication to ensure that these students feel fully seen and heard.
Listen to the webinar for a dynamic conversation on how to support your Students of Color through thoughtful communication.
