Becoming an Antiracist Educator Series

Becoming an Antiracist Educator for Higher Education - Level 1

The Becoming an Antiracist Educator for Higher Education Level 1 is back.

About the Series

The Office of Strategic Engagement launched the Becoming an Antiracist Educator series in Fall of 2020. This dynamic professional learning opportunity is designed to intentionally develop skills to engage in practices to dismantle systems that perpetuate racial inequities.

Participants in this interactive and reflective virtual space will deepen their understanding of race, racism, and systemic inequities. All 2022-2023 series include 9 sessions, as well as a personal/professional antiracist assessment and micro-credential after completion.

Collectively, we will challenge the underlying structures that uphold racism and will develop dispositions to demonstrate antiracist actions within personal and professional environments.
