NCSEHE Equity Insights eNews — Thank you for your support throughout 2020!
Welcome to our final newsletter for 2020. On behalf of the team at the NCSEHE, I would like to express my deepest gratitude to all of you who have supported the Centre throughout 2020.
This year has been like no other, presenting a myriad of challenges for us all, both personally and professionally. I feel the greatest admiration for the extraordinary efforts of everyone across the student equity sector who have gone above and beyond to support our students.
It has been a privilege to be a part of a community which has demonstrated, more than ever, their capacity for collaboration and innovation. I believe it is with this spirit that we will face the new challenges 2021 will bring for student equity in higher education.
One of my greatest inspirations in 2020 has been the resilience, determination and resourcefulness of our students. As such, it gives me great pleasure to present a final video from our student vlogging team, offering their personal reflections on some of the challenges and opportunities that 2020 has brought to each of them.
