Taking Action Against Racism
During the 2021 Spring Semester, faculty and staff gathered every other Thursday for conversations with colleagues about various aspects of anti-racist pedagogy. These conversations were co-hosted by the Faculty Equity and Inclusion Officers and the Center for Teaching and Learning; they were co-facilitated by faculty and instructional staff. These conversations were intended to focus on cooperative learning and problem-solving as opposed to being presentational in nature. Participants brought questions and lived experiences to these discussions so that together, they could better understand how to create an anti-racist classroom and teaching and learning culture at Amherst College.
