‘Goodness’ of Fit: Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging in the Context of College Student Development Theory
This webinar will explore an innovative collection of contemporary approaches and best practices related to College Student Development Theory. Traditional models have provided a myopic view of diverse college student cohorts. African American, Asian American, LatinX, Multiracial, and Native American populations, and those who support these students both within and outside of the higher education context, have all too often had to “force fit” these students into conceptual and theoretical frames that at best provided them with a distorted perspective of their respective identities.
This webinar is based on the new title, Square Pegs and Round Holes: Alternative Approaches to Diverse College Student Development Theory.
