    IDEAS Forum: Recruitment, Retention, & Success: The Importance of Equity-Minded Initiatives

    4:00 pmZoom (Preregister with the link below)

    Dr. Donald Cole, an emeritus upper administrator and faculty
    member in Mathematics recently charged the campus, at the
    ceremony dedicating the renaming of the Martindale-Cole
    building, to follow what he called the “Cole-Martindale Principle”
    which “embraces inclusion, values diversity and demands equity”.
    In pursuit of further discussing this principle, special guests Dr. Donald Cole,
    Dr. Carla Cotwright-Williams, and Dr. Richard Doss will provide a window into the history
    of some of the most impactful equity-focused initiatives for African American students in
    STEM and beyond at the University of Mississippi. The goal of this conversation is to
    support increased understanding and awareness of the importanceof McNair, IMAGE,
    AGEM, and similar initiatives, to inspire equity-minded change by members of our
    College of Liberal Arts community and all and to better support student success inside
    and outside the classroom keeping in mind the importance of building a sense of
    mattering and inclusion for students of color at the University of Mississippi.
