Academic institutions provide a common space for people across lines of race, ethnicity and nationality to examine and discuss the most pressing issues impacting the country. Those within educational communities — faculty, staff, and students — are often affected by the state of the nation, which influences their personal, professional and educational interactions.
Through interactive discussion and activities led by Eddie Moore Jr., PhD, participants will:

Examine how these systems manifest in the structure and culture of colleges and universities and the implications on campus communities
Discover ways to incorporate current events into class discussions and encourage critical thinking around these issues
Learn ways to empower colleagues and students by acknowledging and validating their experiences
