Conference Workshop: “Are We There Yet?: The Complex Journey Toward Institutional Transformation”

June 1, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 11:30 am

Dr. Hackman and Jorge Zeballos will be offering a 3-hour major session at the 2017 National Conference on Race and Ethnicity in Higher Education.

Workshop Description:

Equity and inclusion are quickly becoming critical priorities for most higher education institutions. Often times, colleges search for the best examples for how to institutionalize these priorities in what other institutions are doing. While these examples can be useful, each school will eventually need to customize their own paths toward equity and inclusion. In this workshop, the presenters will help participants grapple with the complexity of such transformation by sharing their own experiences as internal and external change agents and the frameworks and strategies that have arisen from their work. Specifically this session will explore the essential elements of a racial justice focus, a general model for how to envision institutional change, tools for implementing that model and tailoring that change to the institution’s needs, and suggestions on how to address resistance to change.

The session is interactive and we encourage folks to bring examples, questions and struggles from their institutions. While we will be presenting some content pieces, there will be a fair bit of dialogue so please come ready to engage. Given the nature of the topic and the limitations on time, this workshop is best suited for those with a solid understanding of race, racism and whiteness.
