GC: Towards Educational Equity and Transformation

When

Sep. 23, 2022, 12pm to 1pm

Office/Remote Location

Virtual

Description

Our UNLV campus community takes great pride in being one of the most diverse campuses in the nation. Research shows diverse populations fuel creativity, problem-solving, and increase innovation. Celebrating diversity fosters respect and open-mindedness for others. Our differences, as well as our common interests, helps unite diverse groups, understand others perspectives, broaden our own, and educate our community.

While recognizing and celebrating our differences is an important aspect of building a strong campus community, we must also actively and intentionally address educational inequities and (re)create educational spaces that center the needs of those most marginalized within higher education. But what does this look like? It requires asking critical questions about representation and power, and challenging educational policies and practices that marginalize and harm minority groups. As a graduate student, we want to hear from you. Join us for a conversation about strategic and tangible institutional practices and policies to help cultivate educational equity and justice on our campus.

By participating in this workshop you will: 

  • Learn about how diversity, inclusion, equity, and justice operate within higher education
  • Learn strategies for developing a practice of equity mindedness
