Description

Promoting Diversity and Social Justice provides theories, perspectives, and strategies that are useful for working with adults from privileged groups―those who are in a more powerful position in any given type of oppression. This accessible and practical guide offers tools that allow educators to be more reflective and intentional in their work, helping them to consider who they’re working with, what they’re doing, why they’re doing it and how to educate more effectively. During the spring semester, Amy Knapp, Assistant Professor in the Biology Department, and Kim Dexter, Director of Equal Opportunity, will be facilitating monthly discussions with faculty around topics addressed in Dr. Goodman’s book. Each month, Amy and Kim will also highlight concepts that correspond to book chapters through short articles by Dr. Goodman. So even if you haven’t caught up on the book reading, the articles will prepare you to engage in the discussions with your colleagues. Stay tuned for dates, times, and locations!
