Transforming the Academy Reading Group
The Office of Diversity and Inclusion, in partnership with Office of Academic Affairs, is hosting a series of meetings to read and discuss Sarah Willie-LeBreton’s book, Transforming the Academy: Faculty Perspectives on Diversity and Pedagogy (Rutgers University Press, 2016). The goal of the Spring reading group is to come to a better understanding of the professional and institutional challenges faced by faculty members of difference, including those from underrepresented racial/ethnic groups, those who identify as members of the LGBTQ community, and those who are differently-abled. The readings also contain useful suggestions for creating a more equitable environment for all.
Dates of the meetings: Jan 19, 28, Feb 2, 9, and 23 (we won’t meet during Midwinter Break)
Time: 3:00-4:00 pm
