This session will describe how the School of Education is working to build an antiracist faculty community, with a focus on antiracist faculty development, at various levels of influence. Topics include self-interrogation work, faculty hiring and orientation, the role of the Diversity Equity and Inclusion Committee, student groups and listening sessions, antiracist syllabi review, community-based partnerships, and curriculum development. Finally, we plan to discuss ways that our efforts toward culture change may be used by other units.
Identify faculty development of antiracism across multiple levels (individual, interpersonal, organizational, community).
Analyze the role of faculty in changing oppressive higher education policies and structure.
Analyze how your own contexts may be able to improve support for and affirm Black, Brown, Indigenous and other students, faculty and staff with intersectionally oppressed identities.
