It's challenging to heal in a space where all of my identities are not recognized or valued. - Izzy #ARHE2020
Treatment isn't accessible for all. We're not present in recovery spaces but are over represented in the criminal justice system for drugs. - Maysa #ARHE2020

People always ask me what I think the biggest killer is and I believe it is stigma. Stigma keeps people in the shadows and that is what kills people. - @Surgeon_General @ONDCP

Common dominant identity traits of higher ed CRP make-up.

When I walk in a room, the two things that always show up first are race and gender and I don't even get to decide that. This holds true in society AND in higher ed. - Keith #ARHEinBoston

Followed by results from our 2019 Core Survey results by Dr. Laura Rowald of the Core Institute.
What are your policies for missed or late payments from a G.I. Bill? Are we penalizing students by kicking them out of classes for paperwork mishaps? - @dclosn #LaHEC2019

Excellent info to consider as our institutions & @LouisianaGov prioritize campus resources for #veterans.
Be sensitive to all disabilities #studentveterans may have.

Some disabilities are visible and some are not, especially for those who have had traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). - @dclosn #LaHEC2019

"Race matters in higher education." - Lorelle L. Espinosa (VP for Research at ACE) #EquityMatters

Pretty good way to get the morning started!
Key Finding #1: Our populace is becoming more educated, as well as more racially and ethnically diverse -- driven largely in part by an increase of Hispanic students. #EquityMatters
Unsurprisingly, Black students have higher debt loads and have a lower completion rate for credentials. #EquityMatters
