CREDE and other partners host facilitated discussions on race and racism in our communities for faculty and staff.
The Center for Race, Ethnicity, & Diversity Education (CREDE), the Office of Inclusive Excellence Education and Development, and the Office of Leadership and Professional Development (OLPD) are partnering for the 2023 Summer Race Reflection and Discussion Series during the month of June. There are several local and national events which make talking about race continuously difficult, yet still necessary.
This summer, there are three opportunities to engage in reflection and dialogue about the contemporary issues dealing with race, racism, racial inequity at local, regional, and national levels.
