Racism Untaught Faculty Training

via Zoom

Registration Deadline: February 11th

The Office of the Vice Chancellor for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion is excited to host Racism Untaught, an intensive exploration for campus faculty and instructors on cultivating learning environments for people to further explore issues of race and racism, from the obvious to the invisible. This session is specifically focused on the needs of college instructors to attend to race and racism in the classroom.

Racism Untaught teaches participants to utilize the design research process to identify racialized design and critically assess anti-racist design approaches. Facilitated and developed by University of Illinois professor Lisa Mercer and University of Minnesota professor Terresa Moses, this training is meant for faculty, administrators, and other campus professionals to gain a framework for identifying, contextualizing, and re-imagining forms of racialized design. Learn more at Racism Untaught.

Trainings will be held on the following dates/times: Friday, February 18th from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Friday, February 25th from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Participants must be able to attend all 8 hours.

Space is limited, so register today! Registration closes on Friday, February 11th. This training is FREE.
