This toolkit provides tested change leadership strategies for mid-level leaders, and those who support them, with the goal of better equipping these critical actors to lead efforts that accelerate equitable outcomes for marginalized and racially minoritized students. We define equity here as the elimination of race and socioeconomic status as predictors of outcomes. Why focus on mid-level leaders? As those who impact faculty and staff most directly, mid-level leaders must be equipped to translate priorities from above into action plans for those deeper in the institution. How this toolkit helps Large-scale, equity-grounded redesign of developmental education requires leadership training. Nowhere is this more important than at the mid-level, where leaders are tasked with leading implementation of promising practices, strategic direction, systemic change and evidence-based interventions.
