Learn-Unite-Act: An Iceberg to Explore.
The "C" in CACUSS referencing colleges is often absent in our professional university (dare we say "privileged") dialogue. The value of accessible pathways and learning relevant to work not enables students to meaningfully contribute to the fabric of society, but they learn to act as part of a collective, beginning their educational journey as part of a professional community.
As a professional community, we have to continue to LEARN, particularly outside of our dominant paradigms (majoritized identities, as settlers, university-centric perspectives, to name a few); we need to UNITE as a community to explore, be uncomfortable through challenge, and supported to transform; and we need to ACT - within our profession, for our students, and towards a better global society. This is the depth of the iceberg beneath the simple tip of Learn-Unite-Act.
