12 Short-Term Recommendations for the LTI Implementation Team
Recommendations for the LTI Implementation Team
|1. Outreach & Pipeline Development
|Name and compile list of all campus wide programs that are involved in the recruitment and outreach pipeline process for the URM/Latinx community. This recommendation focuses on the coordination and partnerships of all efforts that coordinate outreach and recruitment with the URM/Latinx community.
|2. Outreach & Pipeline Development
|Map out campus programs that are involved with communication, coordination and support once a URM/Latinx student is admitted. What are the various touchpoints and handoffs that exist for newly admitted students?
|3. Outreach & Pipeline Development
|In all that we do we need to understand the data that currently exists. What is this data telling us? What does our data say about which students are being handed off to other programs and in what ways?
|4. Outreach & Pipeline Development
|Coordinate outreach efforts and form strategic partnerships that are in alignment with other campus initiatives (LTI, AAI, NAI, AA&PI).
|5. Outreach & Pipeline Development
|Coordinate outreach, messaging, recruitment w/Latinx faculty and signature events with campus partners.
|6. Admissions, Enrollment & Matriculation
|Reduce Self-Help (S-H) & Establish Group to assess S-H and create a detailed affordability plan.
|7. Admissions, Enrollment & Matriculation
|Partner with the Office of Undergraduate Admissions (OUA) to implement strategies for Latinx thriving based on "Admitted Student Questionnaire" results, which provide data about how our recruitment efforts for admitted students impacted their decisions to attend Berkeley or not.
|Fund 15-person post-doctoral program in 3-5 years.
|Expand access to Professional Development opportunities for lecturers and adjuncts.
|Participate in existing campus efforts that support faculty mentoring (Faculty Link) with focus on Latinx + URM faculty to build faculty capacity in culturally fluent, engaging and humanizing and respectful pedagogy.
|Research the landscape of existing pipeline programs and begin forging relationships.
|Design and deliver a comprehensive strategy that identifies positive touchpoints for all relevant constituencies and communities (e.g., prospective Latinx and URM students, faculty, staff, alumni, donors, etc.)
