Being antiracist is making an attempt to reframe and rethink traditional approaches. This may require getting out of our own way!
Stefan Bradley

Stefan Bradley
01:06:22

imagine yourself in your students' shoes. be considerate of times and circumstances
Stefan Bradley
01:10:17
Reimagination is a key step in progress. It can, however, hurt our egos.
Jennifer Williams (they)
01:10:21
Even in terms of imagining a student, how do we consider equity… what can we provide to make sure that everyone succeeds in the course.
Stefan Bradley
01:11:48
treat each student as that student needs to be treated. treat each semester as its own semester. be careful of falling in love with the rhythm

Jeffrey Wilson, join the crowd! Many of our syllabi would be slaughtered.

An Anonymous Bank!!!
Jennifer Williams (they)

This doesn’t answer your question Rebecca, but it does sounds like another instance of how can we challenge the institution to change the canon, even when we want to push the “liberal arts”
Jennifer Williams (they)

From Alyssa Perez, “ Here is some language we use in the Leadership Courses (EDLA 389-341). Might be helpful to some!”
Jennifer Williams (they)

Loyola Marymount University cares about your health and well-being. Take care of yourself. Do your best to maintain a healthy, balanced lifestyle this semester by eating well, exercising, avoiding drugs and alcohol, getting enough sleep and taking time to relax and be mindful. This will help you achieve your goals, and cope with stress and anxiety.

All of us struggle at times and have bad days. We can all benefit from support when we have a bad day. There are many helpful resources available to you at LMU, and an important part of the college experience is learning how to seek out resources when you need them. One of our Ignatian values is “cura personalis,” or care for the whole person. Caring for your whole person means balancing your mental, physical, emotional, spiritual and social needs, in addition to your academic commitments. Check out all of these health and wellness resources at www.lmu.edu/lionwellness.

LMU cares about you and your well-being. You’ve got this, and we’ve got your back! Please talk with your instructor if you have questions about wellness resources or your coursework.

For Grading: please refer to the email from Dana Milstein on October 26 that talks about upgrading, and other practices that provide a different method of grading.

I’m repeating what Eubanks-Turner said we also have to ensure systems that protect BIPOC faculty who teach controversial or “non-traditional” content.
