This event has filled.

Consider attending "Counternarratives: A Conversation about Faculty Peer-Mentoring (Roundtable)" with Drs. Grollman, Herrera, and Pathak at 10:15 AM on Wed 3/27 in Rose 5211.


Join the authors of Counternarratives from Women of Color Academics: Bravery, Vulnerability and Resistance (New York: Routledge, 2018) in a fishbowl conversation about their book and their experiences. The event is designed to facilitate challenging, sometimes contentious, conversations in a safe space where we listen, learn, and process the discomfort of our implicit and explicit racial biases.

Facilitators: 

Partners/Co-sponsors: 

  • The College of Education,
  • The College of Arts & Letters,

Faculty participants will make progress toward:

  • Witnessing the challenges faculty of color face in primarily white spaces; and
  • Considering the role of “color-blind racism” at predominantly white institutions of higher education.

Faculty partcipants will make progress toward this career planning outcome:

  • Developing and fostering productive mentoring and networking relationships.
