Impact Arizona

College Educators Workshop

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:

  • Gain a fuller understanding of racism, bias, privilege and power in America
  • 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
