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 as 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.
