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.

MOMENTUM: A LECTURE SERIESThe purpose is to strengthen each other’s optimism, emotional control, empathy, perspective talk, prosocial goals and mindful attention.

It is a space to discuss and mobilize how we can better help our college’s work on policing equity and ending racism once and for all.
