In this Teaching Scholarship Circle (TSC), a four-session forum of roundtable discussions, we will grapple with the difficult issue of mentoring students of color. With the spate of violence against people of color over the past few years, and on the heels of the recent presidential election in which aspects of race were front and center, this issue has never been more important. Who are students of color? What does it mean to be “of color”? And how can we, in an educational environment, better aide these students in their academic journeys? We will discuss all of these issues, and more, in this TSC.
Lunch will be served. Enrollment is limited to the first 15 people.
