Book Discussion: “From Equity Talk to Equity Walk: Expanding Practitioner Knowledge for Racial Justice in Higher Education” by Tia Brown McNair, Estela Mara Bensimon, and Lindsey Malcom-Piqueux

Join participants from across Indiana, Kentucky, North Carolina, and Ohio as they discuss this recently released book from the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) and the Center for Urban Education at USC. The authors provide examples of ways institutions can design and implement effective campus change strategies to establish expansive and equity-minded campus cultures.

Starting Tuesday, March 23, 2021, discussions will take place virtually on the Third Tuesday of each month from March through July. Participants will discuss one chapter per month and be encouraged to work with others at their institution to develop ideas on how ideas from the text might influence and accelerate change.

Discussion will take place at 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM (EST) and 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM (EST). Participants can choose to participate in one or the other discussion session but are asked to commit to that time session for the entire series.


This program is FREE and open to individuals from Indiana, Kentucky, North Carolina, and Ohio Campus Compact partner institutions, and their community partners.

Compact Regional Conferences


March 17, Western Campus Compact: Continuums of Service

May 25, Midwest Campus Compact

Compact21 is the Western and Midwestern Campus Compact’s 2021 conference series, held virtually on March 17th and May 25th respectively. This series will comprise two 4-hour virtual conferences focused on Resilience and Responsibility for Racial and Environmental Justice, two components of the systemic injustice that result in the unkept promise of full and equitable participation in education, employment, health care and environmental quality.

Conference participants, students, community partners, national service members, veterans, faculty, staff, and administrators will explore how to partner in renewing the promise of full participation in higher education, a flourishing democracy, and productive, meaningful and gainful careers. In keeping these promises we will support the development of student, community and campus resilience by achieving and defining a civic consensus on our collective boundary-spanning responsibilities for racial and environmental justice.
