Antiracist Pedagogy Across the Curriculum (ARPAC)

Community of Practice

The ARPAC Community of Practice (CoP) provides ongoing support for faculty members who have attended any of the ARPAC institutes. The CoP provides a space for efforts to improve teaching; to support faculty as teachers; and to engage in conversations and investigations of the intersections of race and racism in teaching, classrooms, academic disciplines, departments, and academia, in general.

We encourage all ARPAC cohort members to participate in these meetings, as time allows, to provide support and feedback for each other, share teaching strategies and stories, and continue to strengthen a community of antiracist educators.
