Antiracist Pedagogy Across the Curriculum (ARPAC)

ARPAC Institute

2022 Virtual ARPAC Institute

The 11th annual Antiracist Pedagogy Across the Curriculum (ARPAC) Institute will be held virtually through Zoom. The award-winning institute is open to teaching faculty from all higher education institutions. This year, we invite teams of 2-5 faculty per institution to apply for one of four cohorts:

Cohort 1: June 1 (8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.) and June 6-10 (8:30 a.m. – 12 p.m.) 
Cohort 2: June 2 (8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.) and June 6-10 (1 – 4:30 p.m.) 
Cohort 3: June 3 (8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.) and June 13-17 (8:30 a.m. – 12 p.m.) 
Cohort 4: June 4 (8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.) and June 13-17 (1 – 4:30 p.m.)

Registration for 2022 is closed. 

The ARPAC Institute provides intensive professional development for faculty committed to incorporating antiracist pedagogy into their courses; it is not a train-the-trainer program. ARPAC engages faculty in an analysis of systemic racism and provides a conceptual framework focused on antiracist pedagogy for a rigorous and relevant curriculum. The institute also provides the ongoing ARPAC Community of Practice to support faculty, across the curriculum, in their teaching and commitment to antiracist praxis. In addition, participating faculty are encouraged to develop campus-specific strategies for broader antiracism organizing across their institutions.

The ARPAC organizing team is committed to developing a community of antiracist educators. We acknowledge that building relationships and doing antiracism work in person has many advantages that can't be fully replicated in a virtual environment. At the same time, we are committed to ensuring the health and safety of all participants and learning partners in this time of COVID.

The 2022 Virtual ARPAC offers a curriculum designed specifically for the virtual environment. In order to create authentic community, participants will be expected to keep their video on and be fully present.

The institute will be led by nationally recognized scholars, Dr. Emily Drew (Willamette University) and Dr. Kyoko Kishimoto (St. Cloud State University), and Core Organizer/Trainers from Crossroads Antiracism Organizing and Training.
