Presidential Webinar Series

Space, Place, and Relationship in Higher Education: A Webinar Series. Postsecondary education has been and continues to experience the fallout from the COVID-19 global pandemic. Part of that fallout has included significant disruptions to how place and space in higher education is understood and experienced and the consequences for relationships of validation and mattering. Also important has been the ways that place and space are used in equity conversations.


Webinar #1:
COVID and Equity Occupying Place and Space
Thursday, April 22, 2021
10:00am-11:00am Pacific

It has been a full year since COVID-19 has changed higher education as places and spaces for living, learning, and becoming. The impact of shifting to remote learning has especially impacted minoritized students who have lost the conceptual "spaces" and physical "places" where learning took place about themselves and others. In many instances, cultural centers have remained open and tried to recreate those places and spaces virtually. In this first of the 2021 ASHE Presidential Webinar Series, moderator Stephen John Quaye discusses with leaders about how they have spanned and unsettled the borders of cultural center physical spaces.

Webinar #2:
Crossing Borders from the Academy: Community Colleges and MSIs
Thursday, June 24, 2021
10:00am-11:00am Pacific

The campus borders of community colleges and Minority-Serving Institutions have often transcended into their local communities and neighborhoods. Now, institutional leaders within other institutions are trying to use this model of community engagement. In this second 2021 ASHE Presidential Webinar, moderator Stephen John Quaye discusses with scholars and practitioners the possibilities of crossing the borders of place and space to live in relationship with neighborhoods and local communities.

Webinar #3:
Equity and Justice in Sustainability Education
Thursday, August 12, 2021
10:00am-11:00am Pacific

The sustainability movement and educators often do not attend to the place for social identities and centering those voices within the movement. This placelessness renders People of Color and those with other and multiple minoritized identities within the movement invisible and often does not center their priorities and needs. In this third 2021 ASHE Presidential Webinar, moderator Stephen John Quaye engages scholars and student activists on the challenges and possibilities of making sustainability education more socially just and equitable.

Webinar #4:
The Plac(e)(ing) of Gender Equity in Higher Education
Thursday, October 14, 2021
10:00am-11:00am Pacific

The borders of "gender equity" usually stop at women getting into senior leadership roles. This approach at best ignores and at worst invisibilizes trans* people and all women (cisgender and trans*) who are in facilities, food service, and other areas of campus lower in status and hierarchy. In this fourth and final 2021 ASHE Presidential Webinar, moderator Stephen John Quaye discusses with scholars the place of a truly expansive conversation about gender equity in higher education.
