Special Aequitas/VITAL Faculty Associates Grants

course design

The Aequitas Task Force on Race has proposed the development of a University Race and Justice course (URJC) and has offered a 2021-2022 URJC/VITAL Faculty Associates program to support the development of College-specific iteration of  the course. This one-time program is an innovative partnership by the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, the Intergroup Relations Program and VITAL. 

The following faculty have been awarded Faculty Associate positions and will be developing the College-specific content of URJC and design instructional approaches to purposefully integrate the College-specific content with both the asynchronous and dialogic content of the URJC to ensure a cohesive student learning experience:
