Educators at CUNY are doing some great work and want to shed some light on their efforts.
They have an event on Dec. 6th titled “Critically Engaging Race and Racism in Higher Education.”
Event 1: Workshop, 3pm – 5pm
Navigating Race and Racism in the Classroom: Integrating Teaching Materials Across the Disciplines
In response to the Black Lives Matter movement, college educators are seeking to meaningfully integrate teaching materials into their courses that address issues of race and racism in their disciplines. Join us for a workshop where groups of GC student instructors
in the Arts, Humanities, Social Sciences, and STEM will collaboratively locate, generate, annotate, and organize a range of materials, resources, and strategies that college teachers can integrate into their courses. In the aftermath of the elections, this workshop presents an avenue for college educators to engage more deeply with responsive pedagogy and socially conscious practices across the CUNY classrooms.
Event 2: Round Table, 5:30pm – 7:30pm
Teaching, Research, Service: A Roundtable with Graduate Center Students of Color
Doctoral students of color at the Graduate Center represent a significant percentage of the student body, the teaching faculty, and the labor force across CUNY. Their experiences offer valuable insights and perspectives on higher education that are rarely discussed, and which would benefit from exposure and support. In this roundtable discussion, graduate students of color will share their experiences learning, teaching, and working at CUNY. Following this discussion, the panelists and the audience will engage in conversation about the specific challenges that students of color face at CUNY and in the academy more broadly.
Also, educators are gearing up to for teach-ins and workshops.
Any folks interested in gathering interest for something similar at SJU (ideally by collaborating with student orgs)?
