From October 7-10, 2018, approximately 35 leaders of TRIO state and regional associations gathered at Cornell University for the second annual COE Executive Leadership Institute for College Opportunity Professionals. Spear-headed by the Vice President of Student and Campus Life and Director of the Public Service Center, the Executive Leadership Institute allowed participants to learn more about the University’s commitment to access and equity for low-income students, first-generation students, students of color, and students with disabilities. During the four-day Institute, participants engaged in courses around state and federal policy, campus inclusivity and institutional transformation, and crucial conversations. Participants also received coaching in areas related to association leadership, including team building and strategic planning. Following the Institute, participants will engage in small group case studies focusing on issues relating to campus climate, state policy, or association leadership. Participants will make final presentations of their case studies during the 2019 Leadership Summit in Washington, D.C., on March 24, 2019.
