RISE invites employees to explore identity, power and privilege

To support inclusion, scholarship, equity and overall student success, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion and the Center for Teaching Excellence will facilitate the RISE (Reclaiming Inclusion through Scholarship and Equity) Institute and Conversations. We hope you will join in this fall as we explore “Identity, Power and Privilege.” All LCC employees are welcome. 
 
Participants will investigate unconscious bias and critical issues educators face every day. The RISE Institute and Conversations are designed to encourage ownership of professional growth and learning, with the ultimate goal of improving teaching and enhancing inclusion efforts, which makes student success possible.

Using Critical Pedagogy and Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework, the RISE Institute offers LCC’s educators ways to include self-reflection and introspection that lead to greater inclusion in their classrooms and work areas. These sessions are intended for faculty and administrators.

Additionally, all non-faculty staff members are invited to participate in the RISE Conversations. Schedules follow below.
