Special Event, December 6: Critically Engaging Race and Racism in Higher Education

On December 6th the TLC is partnering with the Adjunct Project, the Solidarity Committee of the Graduate Center chapter of PSC-CUNY, and the Mina Reese Library to host “Critically Engaging Race and Racism in Higher Education.”

In the first event, from 3-5pm — “Navigating Race and Racism in the Classroom: Integrating Teaching Materials Across the Disciplines” — attendees will work together to collect and curate teaching resources, materials, and strategies that can be integrated into courses in various disciplines. This event will have an online component so that those who cannot attend in person can participate remotely (we will share more details about that later).

In the second event, from 5:30-7:30pm — “Teaching, Research, Service: A Roundtable with Graduate Center Students of Color” —  Graduate Center students of color will discuss their experiences learning, teaching, and working at CUNY, sharing the challenges they’ve faced and the opportunities they’ve encountered. The panel and subsequent discussion will be moderated by TLC Fellow and Urban Education student Sakina Laksimi-Morrow.

Both events will be in Room 9204 at the Graduate Center, and the Doctoral Student Council will generously be providing light refreshments in-between the events. The events are open to all members of the CUNY community, and no RSVP is necessary.

We hope to see you there!

Special thanks to Sean Kennedy, Sheehan Moore, Travis Sweatte, Chloe Asselin, Anh Tran, Connor Tomás Reed, and Shawn(ta) Smith for their labor in planning this event.
