  • Bringing Anti-Racism and Allyship into the Classroom: Self-paced online course
    Anti-racism is the “active process of identifying and eliminating racism by changing systems, organizational structures, policies and practices and attitudes, so that power is redistributed and shared equitably” (from the National Action Committee on the Status of Women International Perspectives: Women and Global Solidarity). Building on the resources in a toolkit created at Wheaton College, this CIE self-paced course guides faculty and staff through eight steps to build a more anti-racist institution (note: although some of the steps focus specifically on teaching and classroom content / pedagogy, much of the material should be useful to anyone who interacts with students, whether in or out of a classroom).
