Join us for a conversation about what we can learn from the student testimonials gathered by IC Rise Up and other students over the years. We will begin with a brief presentation of the themes from the IC Rise Up testimonials and theoretical grounding of racial micro/macro aggressions, before opening the conversation to collectively think about how faculty can adjust our pedagogies and practices in the classroom, lab, rehearsal spaces, etc. to create more equitable environments for our students. The conversation is open to any faculty member who is open to ongoing conversation. This is not intended to be a how-to workshop, but rather part of a larger on-going conversation and movement to action.
