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 professional work settings (corporate, non-profit, etc.). This workshop will ask participants to think more closely about the nuances of racial in/justice and in/equity in higher education and how those nuances, along with the cultural and professional norms of academia, impact the frameworks and tools that we might use as racial justice proponents.
This workshop is designed for master's students, doctoral students and postdoctoral fellows. For faculty and staff, please contact RackhamEvents@umich.edu to see if we can accommodate your attendance.
