Antiracist & Decolonization Educational Series

Antiracist & Decolonization Educational Series


The purpose of this personal development educational series is to provide members of the campus community with opportunities to engage in deep learning, healing, and envisioning in the context of recognizing and celebrating humanity. Centering topics such as antiracism and decolonization, participants will be guided along their personal journey of engaging in (un)learning, (re)thinking, and (re)imagining a better world so that all can truly survive and thrive.

Workshops will be virtual, allowing for a synchronous (live and cohort-based) and asynchronous (recorded) model. Multiple (two) live workshops will be offered for each workshop to accommodate different schedules. Attendance is only necessary at one session during the week the event is offered. Workshops will also be recorded to allow for an asynchronous, self-paced model.
