This session aims to strengthen the framework for promising practices in learning with alumni, a potentially vital contribution to the success of both New Majority and traditional students. We propose a closer link among three areas of educational innovation: (i) socially responsive learning pathways and the life phases associated with them, extending to the student-to-alum transition); (ii) developmental phases conceptualized in terms of intercultural maturity and
self-authorship, and (iii) change efforts particular to institutional type and mission, especially student success efforts that center on the whole person before and after graduation. Speakers will attend to student pathways into/through/out of civic learning experiences, especially as experienced by New Majority graduates who are creating new forms of alumnihood. This panel takes seriously intercultural capabilities and democracy skills that are joined under the rubric of “full participation” and stresses intergenerational approaches to fostering more inclusive institutional cultures.
