Bowling Green State University

Being able to support Black, Indigenous and all People of Color (BIPOC) is of critical need at BGSU. Provost Whitehead has indicated that we continue to see striking disparities in retention rates and graduation rates between the majority white student body and BIPOC students. While many scholars agree that the history and continued influence of white supremacy in higher education contribute to these present-day disparities, many faculty are left wondering what can be done now to disrupt these patterns. Utilizing an equity self-audit tool to deeply explore curriculum and pedagogical decisions can assist faculty in engaging more intentionally in antiracist practices. This workshop will introduce one such tool; Participants will be guided to begin the critical self-reflection process of their own teaching praxis. 

Learning Outcomes: 

  • To increase my understanding of the influences of colonization and white supremacy has on the context of higher education, and the role antiracism has in restoring equity and justice 
  • To examine audit tools which can be used to aide in the critical self-reflection of pedagogical decisions 
  • To begin critically reflecting on the influences on my teaching practices and identify spaces to move the needle towards antiracist education
