The Hechinger Report
On the day after Donald Trump was elected president, Jacob Maldonado sat in a Chipotle restaurant with his best friend, Maria Campos, and wondered aloud. "Is it worth it?" asked Maldonado, who had been working days and studying nights to get through Trevecca Nazarene University, where both were juniors. They knew the political winds were shifting; they might not make it to graduation before the new administration ended Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, the status that protected them from deportation and gave them access to driver's licenses and work permits that, in turn, helped make it possible for them to pay for college.

As emerging professionals in higher education continue to stem from diverse identities and backgrounds, it is important to highlight how digital communities can provide space, community, and connection points for practitioners. This webinar will showcase how two digital communities – the Men of Color in Career Services and the Women of Color in Career Services groups – champion professionals from varying backgrounds, center success around personal narratives, and provide opportunities for deeper connections in the digital space. Participants can learn how these communities were formed and facilitated by its creators in addition to learning the value and relevance of the groups from current participants.

There's one key amenity keeping Vita Preciado in college. No, it's not a gourmet cafeteria, brand new gym or even financial aid or scholarship dollars. It's her school's campus child-care center. "If I didn't have access to the child care I probably wouldn't be in school," the 36-year-old said. And if you take one look at Preciado's schedule, it's easy to understand why having access to an affordable, safe and reliable place to leave her children is so important. During the week, she works as a pharmacy technician from 9:30 p.m. to 7:30 a.m., gets home, takes her children to school, heads to her own classes, picks up her children, heads home and tries to find time for homework and family time before starting it all over again.

Compliance U Four Corners of Title IX Training is a live 2.5 day module providing intermediate (and some advanced) level instruction on Title IX education with instruction by Professor Peter Lake from Stetson University School of Law and Julian Williams from George Mason University.

Registration for this event will also include access to Compliance 101 and Title IX 101 on Compliance U as well as Peter Lake’s publication The Four Corners of Title IX Regulatory Compliance: A Primer for American Colleges and Universities.
There's been a lot of attention lately on low-income students on campus — mostly on how to recruit them and how to make them feel welcome. For good reason: Pell Grant recipients make up about a third of the undergraduate student population in the U.S., according to the College Board. And often, their experiences in college are very different than their wealthy classmates.

FACT: Approximately half of ACPA members currently identify as entry-level professionals. This is why we created the Phyllis L. Mable New Professionals Institute (NPI).
NPI addresses the knowledge and skills emerging professionals desire as they collectively serve thousands of students on a daily basis. This institute includes several mentoring opportunities and one-on-one interactions with today’s leaders in higher education and student affairs as resident faculty and small group facilitators.
Title IX — the U.S. civil rights law passed in 1972 that prohibits sex discrimination in federally funded education programs — has been widely recognized as a crucial step toward gender equality in America. A new study tracks the changing use of Title IX over time in response to perceived gender disparities, and for the first time, systematically analyzes how the law has been mobilized at the federal level through complaints filed against four-year nonprofit colleges and universities.

The Chronicle of Higher Education
Debates around online education often get stuck on the question of whether it's as good as face-to-face learning. Perhaps the better question is, How can online education get better? After all, many students choose online courses for their convenience, and in-person classes are often not an option for them. More than six million people take online courses each year, including one of every four undergraduates.
Showcase Institutions have previously attended the Institute on the Curricular Approach (formerly Residential Curriculum Institute) and are willing to share their journey toward a curricular approach!
