Getting Faculty On Board with Social and Racial Justice Education

Dr. Heather Hackman
White Privilege Conference 17
April, 2016

How do we get faculty on board with racial justice education?  What does education look like at its very best; the most liberating, enlivening and actualizing for students?  In what ways do race, racism and whiteness get in the way of education being its very best? HCG uses backwards design to help faculty analyze the important role social justice education plays in actualizing our ideas about powerful and transformative education.
