Office of the Dean

Please join the College of Education for our final fall 2021 college-wide dialogue of a 3 part series: "Antiracism, Accountability, & Action: Identifying Pathways towards Institutional Change." On December 8, we will build on themes that came up during our first and second Difficult Dialogues, specifically addressing the intersections of anti-racism, accountability and action. This will be an opportunity for our community members to collectively discuss the various infrastructures needed to move toward action that will help shape the College of Education’s pathway to creating institutional change.

Dr. Bridget Turner Kelly, COE Diversity Officer and Chair of Council on Racial Equity and Justice (COREJ), will provide closing remarks. This event is part of the College of Education's Difficult Dialogues on Antiracism for Transformational Institutional Change. In this dialogue series, we take on difficult conversations around antiracism with the intention of sharing, learning, healing, and being spurred into personal and collective action around topics of importance in our College. We hope for many different decision makers and roles to be present, from students, staff and faculty to University policymakers. We believe that change is embodied in our engagement in hard conversations across our differences and that dialogue strengthens our consciousness as individuals and as a College community.

Event information: Wednesday, December 8 at 5:30PM - 7:00 PM

NOTE: This is event is for UMD College of Education students, staff and faculty only.
