Race Dialogues, A Conversation for Students - October 14 and November 4, 2020
In many ways, college campuses represent a microcosmic view of the greater world at large. As the world changes and grows more diverse, so have college campuses. However, race remains a topic few choose to engage. As Georgia Tech grapples with race and its desire to set the standard for building inclusive, equitable communities, understanding the role students play, as well as equipping students with the language and tools to discuss race, are paramount. These sessions will create a space for students to discuss race on campus and the idea of difference, as well as how we construct difference and the ways in which we place value on difference. These sessions will unpack the social construction of race and examine how those values ascribed to race and difference affects student experiences and outcomes. We will also discuss strategies and tools for addressing racial inequity and exclusion on campus.
