We are so proud of our outstanding students! Many thanks to our Peak Performer Alumni for coming to WCU and speaking at the ceremony as well as our student ambassadors, faculty, and staff who helped to create a wonderful celebration!
The Equity Summit is an event that has been a long time coming. We’re so proud of our colleagues, partners, and students. Dr. Bettina Love got us riled up for the work and many #CEAP faculty and regional school partners were there to share the work. Dr. González-Rosario spoke about language policing and our journey toward language justice. Dr. Patricia Bricker, Rebby Kern, & Kayleigh Kassel talked about Safe & Affirming Schools for LGBTQIA+ Students. Both #WCU MiSTERS & Asheville City HS students came to engage & talk about inequities with codes of conduct, the school to prison pipeline, the achievement gap, poverty, & more. With them as our future, I’m encouraged.
