Through an Equity Lens: Redesigning Counseling in the California Community Colleges

October 7, 2022

9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Strengthening Student Success Conference

Improving the student counseling experience has emerged as a key focus on campuses engaged in Guided Pathways redesign. Colleges have taken varied approaches in rethinking and reimagining counseling. For such efforts to be truly transformative, counseling faculty need to be engaged in meaningful and deep conversations about rethinking counseling through an equity lens. In this post-conference workshop, a panel of counselors and student services administrators will share their redesign stories and how they’ve found a way forward. Join us in this lively session and come ready to consider how your campus might reimagine and strengthen counseling services grounded in equity.
