Anti-Racist Education: Curriculum Development Cohort

Congratulations to 2021 members of the Pilot Initiative on Anti-Racist Education: Curriculum Development Cohort

We are pleased to announce the 2021 members of the Pilot Initiative on Anti-Racist Education: Curriculum Development Cohort. This program provides financial support for faculty to pursue projects which focus on integrating anti-racism into curricula.  The cohort will inform shared understanding of anti-racist education at Seattle University, grow our capacity to advance it through high-impact practice, and contribute to institutional efforts to realize our Strategic Vision of becoming “one of the most innovative and progressive Jesuit and Catholic universities in the world, educating with excellence at the undergraduate, graduate and professional levels."

This pilot program is an initial step forward in the more comprehensive endeavor of Reimagining and Revising Our Curriculum. The program aims to support the development and enhancement of curricula through an anti-racist lens. The goal of this pilot grant program is to encourage innovation, inspire creativity, and strengthen anti-racism literacy as a key feature of our approach to Jesuit education.
