Educational Equity (EEQ) is a partnership between the Office of Equity and Pluralism, Office of Academic Affairs, and the Faculty Commons. EEQ is a series of learning opportunities that builds upon each module. It is intended for all faculty to learn about implementing principals of educational equity and social justice in the classroom and broaden faculty’s understanding of their own social positions/identities as they affect behaviors in the classroom and relationships with all students.
In addition, this series will help build and develop their cultural and equity competency skills sets.
Please note that if you know ahead of time that you will miss more than two sessions, we ask you to wait for the next opportunity and/or give the seat to someone else. Your consistent participation in a classroom will contribute to all participants’ learning and the overall success of the Educational Equity learning goals. However, if you need a specific accommodation, please contact Gilbert Villalpando: firstname.lastname@example.org, 425-564-2300.
