Dr. Daniel E. Walker: Pathways for Student Success
The Diversity in Action Group (DIAG) and the Center for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) is delighted to present the first speaker of the Presidentâ€™s Forum for Academic Excellence: Pathways to Student Success. All faculty, staff, administrators, and students are invited to attend and instructors that have class at that time are encouraged to bring their students.
Dr. Walker is a dynamic and engaging speaker, and his presentation, â€œLetâ€™s Get To Work!: Creating and Sustaining a Culture of Student Success,â€ is targeted at CSMâ€™s employees and students alike. He will address the opportunity gap experienced by students of color and propose potential pathways to closing this gap and promoting academic excellence among all student demographics from the administrative, instructional, and student levels.
Dr. Walker is a Professor of History at El Camino College in the Los Angeles area, a Research Associate at USC's Center for Religion and Civic Culture, and the President and CEO of Perfect Works.
