Days of Reflection: Education for Racial Equity and Justice
Statement of Purpose
The Days of Reflection is an initiative intended for education and conversation necessary for moving our campus, community, region, state, nation, and world toward greater racial equity and justice.
Following up on the success of, and feedback from, our events in Fall 2016 and Spring 2017, we have scheduled longer sessions to allow for more conversation among participants. This also resulted from a recognition that conversations about race, ethnicity, and culture must be sustained and grown in a society which breeds racial illiteracy and cultural incompetence.
These much-needed events and the preparatory work for them were sponsored by the College’s Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion as part of its belief that "a commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and social justice is essential in preparing engaged global citizens to lead lives enriched by critical thought, creativity, discovery, and the pursuit of academic excellence.”
Fall 2017 Days of Reflection Events: October 17-18, 2018
Sponsored by the SUNY Potsdam Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. Please consider incorporating these events into your Fall plans or excusing students who wish to attend.
