GPDE5441A: Missing Voices: Equity in Education Summit Spring 2019 Advocate: Access & Act!  (1 cr.)
The sixth Missing Voices: Equity in Education Summit is titled “Advocate: Access & Act!” and is presented by the Graduate School of Education and the Center for Culturally Responsive Engagement at Saint Mary’s University. The Missing Voices Summit brings together a variety of stakeholder voices to engage in solution-oriented dialogue and actionable steps toward educational equity. Attendees draw from an array of multiple perspectives including youth (high school and college-age), parents and families, community members, teachers and administrators. Through intentional collaboration, the goal of the conference is to increase equitable learning opportunities for ALL students. 

To earn credit for this experience, participants will synthesize their learnings from the conference and develop an action-based project inspired by this year’s theme: advocacy and civic engagement. To engage more fully with this theme, students will collaborate with stakeholders on an issue and take action, such as creating a strategy to embed civic engagement into the curriculum. Participants will write reflections of their projects and connect their learning to their classrooms. Coursework will be completed as an independent study following the conference.

Registration for, and participation in, the Missing Voices: Equity in Education Summit is required in order to complete GPDE5441A. Please register for the Summit separately at Missing Voices Summit Registration. Educators and administrators are charged $125 for Summit attendance and the GPDE5441A course is billed separately.
