Virtual Symposium: Anti-Racist Community-Engaged Learning: Principles, Practices, and Pedagogy

All faculty, staff, and students are invited to join an upcoming virtual symposium, organized by the Massachusetts Department of Higher Education, on Anti-Racist Community-Engaged Learning: Principles, Practices, and Pedagogy. The symposium will take place on Monday, September 20th, with several sessions running from 11am to 4pm. For a complete schedule of the day’s virtual sessions, take a look at the event website. While many of the panelists will be speaking from the perspective of higher education community engagement or community-engaged learning, some of the sessions address anti-racist pedagogy, faculty development, research, communities of practice, and other campus-wide initiatives that may be of interest to us all.

The Center for Social Impact will be sponsoring in-person, on-campus viewing sessions for the 11am panel and the 12:45pm keynote panel, with a lunch in between. (On-campus location TBD.) The Center will also sponsor a limited number of virtual registrations, for those that are not able to come to campus and would like to attend the symposium remotely. (Please note: most of the symposium will not be recorded, so those that opt for virtual registrations should plan to attend the online sessions in real time.)

Please use the form below to let us know if you are interested in attending some or all of the on-campus viewing sessions, or if you would like to access the symposium remotely with your own virtual registration. Since the event is approaching quickly, we’re asking that you kindly send your RSVP by the end of the day on Wednesday, September 15th.
