College of Arts and Sciences Equity and Inclusivity Teaching Series ‘Being Black at a HSI (and Not Always Being OK)’ via Zoom
August 28 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Friday, August 28th @ 12pm
Dr. Henrietta Williams Pichon, Interim Dean, College of Education
HSI are slowly gaining recognition as diverse institutions, places in which one, mostly minority students, may feel a sense of kinship on campus in that they see others that look like them. The assumption is that one minoritized group will create lessons learned that all could benefit from is simply not the case. Simply stated, not all minoritized groups are the same; therefore, a one size fits all approach does not always work within an organization. First, one has to understand the stories of those minoritized groups within the organization and create best practices that best meet the needs of those groups. This workshop will examine the Black student experiences at a HSI and how we can learn to assess when things are not OK and what we should or should not do about it.
