You’re not crazy, you’re not wrong: Hearing experiences of people of colour in the university
September 17, 2020 at 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
The conventional image of the university is of a place that promises an environment where open-minded people exchange ideas freely, for the benefit of all parties equally. And for some, that is the experience of a university campus.
But for others—specifically students, faculty, and staff of colour—the campus is a contradictory space, where tolerance is promised but not always delivered, and where the ugly realities of everyday non-campus life are also a significant part of the university experience. As the populations on university campuses change, if slowly, it becomes more and more important that everyone on campus come to understand how this place feels when it does not live up to its lofty aspirations.
Join us for this important conversation.
Format: Webinar; the talk will be followed by a discussion and Q&A moderated by Minelle Mahtani, Senior Advisor to the Provost on Racialized Faculty, UBC Vancouver
