What if there were one set of campus learning outcomes for student leaders at one institution regardless of organization affiliation? Using results from focus groups of faculty and brainstorming sessions with student organization advisors, a cross-departmental team of staff identified competency areas, developed learning outcomes, created rubrics, designed outreach and training, and meta-assessed the results of a pilot program documenting learning in the co-curricular. This session reviews the process and initial results so that others can replicate the process.

Within predominantly White institutions, a number of environmental factors have directly or indirectly hindered, repressed and/or ultimately altered the leadership experiences and effectiveness of African American women. Jones and Shorter-Gooden (2003) contend that shifting, a behavioral response, is often employed by African American women as a means of minimizing the effects of these professional realities. Examining this phenomenon in the context of higher education with women of color is the central focus of the workshop.

Whiteness is a concept that must be defined historically. However, the power of White privilege has subverted history, perpetuating the lie that Whiteness does not exist nor is it privileged.
