About        Papers, Meetings, & Presentations      Resources

The Equity, Access, & Inclusion Network works to increase the visibility of issues including social justice, anti-racism, and cultural consciousness within the NOSS (National Organization for Student Success) organization and the resources NOSS provides its members. Our mission is to establish an open environment to nurture our members and stakeholders commitment in centering our student success work within a framework of equity, access, and inclusion.

Throughout our history, educators and learning assistance professionals have been at the forefront in creating access, developing new pedagogies for teaching, and innovating academic support programs designed to support our diverse array of college students. Our profession recognizes the importance in promoting multicultural, cross-cultural, and intercultural experiences for our students as exposure to diverse people, customs, and ideas enhance social development, increases critical thinking, and prepares students for future careers in a global society. For many NOSS members, this framing is central to our practice while others may be at a more emergent level in their comfort and familiarity with explicitly addressing intersectional issues of power, race, class, language, gender identity, sexual orientation, physical ability, and other sources of difference. For educators who are new to racial equity work, we invite you to take Harvard University's Implicit Association Test.  [hyperlink: https://implicit.harvard.edu/implicit/user/agg/blindspot/indexrk.htm] This test can help individuals identify their hidden biases. Recognition is the first step in change-making. We invite NOSS members to join us in our ongoing journey towards educational equity.
