Strengthening Rural Community Colleges Peer Learning Network - Digital Equity: Supporting Digital Inclusion Efforts for Learners
In partnership with the Rural Community College Alliance (RCCA), ACCT is working to strengthen rural community colleges. Our project builds on ACCT’s prior work through the Strengthening Rural Community Colleges report that engaged rural community college presidents and trustees to gather information about the challenges faced by these institutions. One of the findings of this work was that rural colleges did not feel that they had a way to connect with one another to share ideas and discuss issues.

During this Peer Learning Network discussion, we look to learn and collaborate on programs and initiatives that rural community colleges have implemented, or are looking to implement, which support the digital learning for all students.

Guiding Questions
- What do you see as major barriers that learners, families, and communities face around adoption of broadband connections and technology tools for learning? (Think about overarching barriers as wells as barriers unique to specific populations.)
- How are you currently involved in conversations or initiatives around the advancement of digital equity?
- What are you learning around “what works” to advance digital equity at your institution?
- How has your institution supported digital learning for students, faculty, and staff?
- What types of digital support does your institution provide for students?
- Does your institution provide devices (i.e., laptops, hotspots) for students to stay connected with their courses?
- Does your institution provide training to students and faculty on digital tools that are utilized? What does this training look like?
- Has your institution engaged in the creation of your state’s digital equity plan? If so, how?
