SSSC 2023 Post-conference Workshop: Designing the Future: Toward Equitable Counseling and Student Supports in the CCCs
October 13, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
After years of Guided Pathways redesign, pandemic-induced changes in instructional and student services delivery, and the continuing racial and social justice reckoning, colleges are advancing approaches and models to support students more equitably while meeting them where they are. Counselors continue at the center of much of this work, and while they encounter structural and cultural barriers, many are committed equity champions and have worked with others to develop and refine student-centered reforms. Regrounding counseling’s purpose, delivery, and deployment in this new context has led to emerging strategies including the expansion or merging of learning communities; working with success coaches and teams; and focusing counseling in career communities that expand the network of support.
Join us for a facilitated dialogue about the experience and future of counseling in the California community colleges. Counselors, success coaches, and student services team members who have taken bold steps at their campuses will share their progress and some of the key infrastructure and capacity constraints they’ve addressed along the way. Participants will explore how student experience and equity can be at the center of counseling and student supports going forward as they strive to be equity champions on their campuses.
Presenters: Luis Chavez and Sherry Shojaei, Career Ladders Project, and a panel of CCC counselors and success coaches
