‘Ask Me’

As we look at student needs, it is important to remember that we grow through diversity, and every student has an important contribution to make.  Title IX policy’s are in place to protect students from discrimination, but we shouldn’t follow these policies because they’re the rule, we should follow them because it is absolutely the right thing to do.  The following 12 minute video is from The Chronicle of Higher Education, originally published in September 2015.  Please take the time to watch, and thank you for helping every student feel welcome!
