The College of Information and Communications and the College of Education will host an online session for faculty to learn more about institutional and class policies, class behavior, and how to productively introduce topics of race in the classroom.
The CIC Race and Curricula Discussion is scheduled for July 9 via Zoom and is open to all CIC faculty. Faculty will receive an email with information on attending.
Carolina Distinguished Professor Gloria Swindler Boutte and her urban cohort — Susi Long, Eliza Braden, Kamania Wynter-Hoyte and Meir Muller — will present a 90-minute interactive session exploring how to embed discussions and reflections about race and inclusion into curricula and classrooms. The event is organized by Kim Thompson, CIC associate dean of academic affairs, and Shirley Staples Carter, CIC associate dean of diversity, equity and inclusion.
“This inter-collegiate session provides an opportunity for CIC and College of Education faculty and instructors to engage with each other about timely issues that affect our teaching in higher education,” Thompson says.
