Attitudes toward serving all student populations have shifted the pedagogical and relational approaches used by faculty, staff and administrators at community colleges. Educational practices based on equality, equity and justice are more intentional and integral to the evolution of the work we do as educators. In this session, we will discuss how the work of community colleges has expanded to include going beyond equity into providing a true barrier-free learning environment for students, one that is attuned to justice. What practices both in and out of the classroom can move community colleges practices beyond equity and into justice and liberation? How do we turn classrooms into sites of productivity and innovation, “collaboration and contestation” (Bhabha), belonging, and safe spaces?
The MOMENTUM series is a talk continuum and the Dean’s platform to engage the division in profound practice of mindfulness and actionable conversation – to bridge the equity gap, protect inclusivity, amplify social justice reform and intentionally address structural racism in our classrooms, college and the community.
