As part of Truth and Reconciliation Week, the Academic Success Centre is proud to launch our newly developed Anti-Racism Training for Students.
When we think and talk about racism, most people reference examples of interactions between people. However, racism is also maintained by institutions and society through the implementation of policies, practices, and programs. This training is an introduction on how racism functions as an interconnected system, and it reviews historical instances of racism and current examples of racism.
It is our goal that the Anti-Racism Training will support our students and contribute to the College’s educational efforts in enhancing our knowledge and understanding about racism, acknowledging how racism has shaped our thinking and actions, and speaking out against racism and systemic barriers.
The Anti-Racism Training for Students includes key concepts and frameworks, as well as activities for reflection and discussion. The training also presents a curated suite of relevant videos to amplify the voices and lived experiences of racialized people and Indigenous people. At the end of each training module, students receive a set of key strategies and resources to map out a personal Action Plan and foster an ongoing student learning and action experience.
Join us online on Monday, September 27 at 12noon to learn more about the structure and content of the Anti-Racism Training for Students, and how you can book in-class workshops for your students.
