Workshops

The C.A.R.E. workshops are a key component of the university's journey to a fully inclusive, multicultural, anti-racist institution. The workshop experience is comprehensive and carefully designed to include hands-on activities and interactive small and large group discussions. Overwhelmingly students, faculty and community participants tell us the workshops are relevant, engaging, informative, and eye opening!

Anti-Racist Pedagogy Across the Curriculum: (ARPAC)

The Minnesota State award-winning ARPAC workshop for faculty and teaching graduate students provides intensive training about incorporating anti-racist pedagogy into courses across disciplines.

ARPAC fosters a community of educators committed to anti-racist praxis, which support faculty in the teaching. Learning outcomes include: 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 the everyday experiences; fostering critical thinking and equipping students with anti-racist language and discussion skills; creating a sense of community in the classroom; and developing skills for anti-racist methodologies in the classroom.
