The ACAPT National Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Commission (NEDIC) will be sponsoring a summit in June 2022 to:
- increase the number of racial and ethnic minorities among faculty and leadership in professional education and
- identify and promulgate policy initiatives, best practices, and resource needs related to increasing:
- retention, and
- graduation of racial and ethnic minority students (Black, Native American or Tribal Groups, Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian, and Latinx) in physical therapist professional education programs.
This 2 1/2-day invitation-only summit will bring together ACAPT members, ACAPT partners, and experts to create collaborative workgroups that will endeavor to shift the current landscape for underrepresented minority students and faculty in PT education.
