Anti-Racist Pedagogy

Working toward being an anti-racist institution

The CTL is working to support reflection and action on being an anti-racist (pro-black), equity-minded educator and human. The links below have many resources including key take-aways and the reading list for Spring 2021's Anti-Racist Pedagogy Conversations. We continue to curate resources and are focused on building the capacity and infrastructure necessary for more accessible cross-departmental idea sharing and conversations.

We Offer Assistance Throughout the Semester

The academic year has a flow and we find that there are common needs and some commonly used resources at each time of the semester but please feel free to contact us for any teaching need at any time—there is no question too small or challenge too big. We are here to help you reach your goals for teaching. Please visit our Consultations page to find out more about consultation services we provide or to schedule a consultation. Please visit our A-Z Teaching Resources pages for a list of resources to support your teaching.
