Antiracist Pedagogy Across the Curriculum (ARPAC)

Antiracist Pedagogy Across the Curriculum (ARPAC)


The purpose of the award-winning ARPAC project at St. Cloud State is to provide intensive training for faculty committed to incorporating antiracist pedagogy into courses across disciplines and across campus. ARPAC consists of an annual faculty development workshop and monthly follow-up sessions which support faculty in their teaching, and foster a community of educators committed to antiracist praxis.

Antiracist pedagogy includes:

  • examining theory, structure, and the practice of racism and power relations embedded in history, and academic disciplines
  • raising self-awareness of social locations and knowledge production
  • empowering students by validating and acknowledging their everyday experiences
  • fostering critical thinking and equipping students with anti-racist language and discussion skills
  • creating a sense of community in the classroom
  • developing skills for antiracist methodologies in the classroom

We invite you to be part of the movement to advance higher education institutional change for racial equity.
