Anti-Racism Pedagogy Series

 

As our team in the Faculty Center for Ignatian Pedagogy continues to respond to current events related to the COVID-19 pandemic and the awakening of society to the violence and threats to life and liberty posed by racism and systemic oppression of marginalized groups, particularly black people, we seek to meet the evolving needs of our faculty and our students. We invite all Loyola instructors to join us for part or all of the Anti-Racist Pedagogy series, described below. Each session will be lead by a different faculty facilitator, to be announced soon.
