Roundtable on Advancing Social Purpose in College and Institute Administration and Finance Functions to Strengthen Social Infrastructure: Aide-Mémoire
On May 2, 2018 BCIT and the McConnell Foundation hosted a Roundtable Discussion with three college and institute administrators based in Greater Vancouver, for the purposes of discussing trends, barriers and opportunities in social purpose administration and finance within the colleges and institutes sector. Administrators from the BC Association of Universities and Institutes were invited.
On April 26, 2018, J.W. McConnell Family Foundation’s RECODE initiative and CAUBO hosted a workshop with 22 senior leaders in administration and finance in Western universities. The purpose of the workshop was to present on the Social Purpose Administration and Finance Framework, get feedback on the initiative, and identify collaboration opportunities to overcome barriers and scale social purpose administration within post-secondary institutions, if desired.
With hackED (originally RECODE Collaborate), RECODE’s first major
student-facing initiative, we decided to work directly with students to try and build a movement.
hackED was an effort to: a) create a network of student leaders across the country; and b) develop local chapters that would meet regularly to make change on their campuses. How did it go?
