Recognition and Reckoning: Empowering Men of Color through Equity and Cultural Wealth
June 1-3, 2022
Men of color bring unique strengths and assets to higher education, but they also face specific and complex barriers. Our institutions have struggled to support these men because we’ve focused on “fixing the students” instead of addressing the institutional, systemic, and structural barriers embedded in higher education that undermine their success. Re-envisioning our institutions as spaces designed to support and empower men of color will require a radical and honest reevaluation of who we are and what we do.
This year’s Institute will center on the cultural wealth of men of color and apply an equity-minded lens to our own institutions. This three-day experience will feature local and national scholars, artists, and activists. June 1 and 2 will be held virtually and provide immersive and engaging breakout sessions, hands-on workshops, and critical reflection and networking opportunities. June 3 will offer in-person and virtual opportunities to strategize and implement key takeaways from the Institute and to socialize.
