Anti-Racist Community Engagement Workshop
Thursday, January 28, 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm EST
This interactive virtual workshop will interrogate the role white supremacy often plays in university community engagement experiences and will explore anti-racist approaches to our work in and with communities. The workshop is designed for students with prior knowledge or experience with community engagement who are interested in learning more about how to practice anti-racism in their engaged course, service, project, or research.
Workshop content will build on basic concepts of race, racism, social identity, power, and privilege. If you’re newer to those concepts and how they connect to community engagement, we encourage you to complete modules one and two of the Community Engagement: Collaborating for Change MOOC and/or attend our Entering, Engaging, and Exiting Communities workshop before signing up for this offering. You may also want to read Tania Mitchell’s (2008) Traditional vs. Critical Service-Learning before attending.
This workshop is designed for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. For faculty and staff, please contact RackhamEvents@umich.edu to see if we can accommodate your attendance.
