Confront Racism Affecting Those Marginalized in Our Society

This annual event, organized by an interdisciplinary group of faculty, staff, and students, catalyzes conversations that confront racism as a structural and systemic phenomenon that most affects those marginalized in our society. Each year we begin by looking at racism demonstrated by current events and then reflect on racism and antiracism within our own teaching and learning environment. 

The theme for the Spring 2023 program is "Building Relationships Across Difference: From Isolation to Solidarity."
Check back soon for more information on this annual program.

Co-chairs:  Dr. Kathy Glass, Department of English and Dr. Anna Floerke Scheid, Department of Theology
