Students have shared their experiences with racial microaggressions that occur in the classroom, field, and broader society. Many microaggressions continue to go unaddressed. Participants in this workshop will learn what constitutes racial microaggressions, how to recognize them, power differentials in their interpretation, their effect on the academic success and well-being of Black students, and methods of intervention. Attention will be given to the interest faculty members have in creating safe and inclusive classroom environments. The workshop will be knowledge- and skills-based, including case studies, handouts, role-playing, group discussion/breakouts, and videos.
Participants will recognize racial microaggressions and their potential effects on Black Students.
Participants will explain how to intervene when racial microaggressions occur, either by themselves or by another in the classroom.
