Building Your Toolbox as an Anti-Racist Advocate in Higher Ed

Thursday, March 31, 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm EDT

Higher Ed is a particular kind of work and learning space. While it shares characteristics with its primary and secondary counterparts, it is decidedly different in its teaching, student, and administrative contexts. As a result, anti-racist work in higher education settings must look different than it might in K-12 contexts and in other types of professional work settings (corporate, non-profit, etc.).

Learning Objectives:

  • Critically think and examine the nuances of racial in/justice and in/equity in higher education
  • Examine how these nuances impact the frameworks and tools that are used as racial justice proponents

This workshop is designed for University of Michigan master’s students, doctoral students, and postdoctoral fellows. For faculty and staff, please contact Rack-prof-dev@umich.edu to see if we can accommodate your attendance.
