Anti-Racism Seminar

This highly interactive and experiential virtual seminar is designed to bring students of diverse backgrounds together to discuss racism as a foundation for understanding different systems and forms of oppression. Student participants are encouraged to explore their own social identities, lived experiences, beliefs, and behaviors within a framework of systemic power, oppression, and privilege.  

The seminar is facilitated by Social Justice Education staff and is open to 1st and 2nd year undergraduate students.  It is a 6-week commitment, and participants must be willing to commit to the cohort and attend as many sessions as possible while participating in some outside readings and assignments.

The Anti-Racism Seminar is intended for students eager to talk about race and racism with some experience contemplating their own racial identity and curiosity about how racism shows up in the world around them and their socialization and upbringing. Participants must desire to learn more about themselves and structures of oppression but no dialogue experience, particular jargon, or activism/political work needed.
