The Virginia Consortium on the Rhetoric of Health and Medicine (VCRHM) convened their second annual Colloquium at James Madison University on April 18-19, 2019. This second colloquium gave VCRHM members an opportunity to continue to plan and pursue a multi-site project related to rhetoric and the opioid crisis in the Commonwealth.
Similar to the inaugural colloquium (https://4va.gmu.edu/moving-virginia-healthcare-forward-through-effective-communication/) held in 2018 at Mason, academic leaders from JMU and VT -- along with those at Mason -- participated in person at the Colloquium, while several other leaders in the field participated virtually via telepresence technology.
Following on the first Colloquium at Mason, the participants at the 2019 meeting Identified primary areas of research, articulated research questions, and made research assignments for the next two stages of planned outcomes, which includes a conference panel proposal. Additionally, the VCRHM members assembled into preliminary teams for qualitative research program plans and began planning for the 2020 colloquium, which will be held at Virginia Tech in June 2020.

The Virginia Assessment Group, representing higher education assessment professionals from around the Commonwealth, wanted to host an all-day workshop providing critical training on best practices in data collection, analysis, and reporting for their colleagues statewide. Plus they wanted to include presentations from some of the country’s top leaders in the field. Their challenge? Make this workshop available not just those higher-ed assessment professionals from well-heeled schools or those with a travel budget, but to all their colleagues from community colleges or those in remote areas of the state. Their solution? A grant from 4-VA and access to the six 4-VA schools and their telepresence room technology. Their results? An instant success.

Recent surveys indicate that a Mason student population of 45 to 50 percent identify that English is not their primary language at home – a unique point of distinction for Mason. However, with no existing road maps for multilingual student success, Mason INTO has joined with the Stearns Center to develop a ground-breaking effort to harness this resource and create a path for faculty and students to support them on their academic journey. Helping to build that path is a grant from 4-VA which funds two fellows who are already knee deep in data analysis and resource development – the foundation of the effort.
