Happy Canada Day Karin...;-)
Here’s story on Ivonne being named to post at College of Wooster:https://news.wooster.edu/news/2019/01/dr-ivonne-m-garcia-named-woosters-first-chief-diversity-equity-and-inclusion-officer/

Welcome, everyone. Along the way please feel free to use the Q&A function to ask questions. We’ll try to get to as many as we can during the conversation.
For those who have asked, yes, this is being recorded and a link will be made available later.
Here’s Karin’s latitude(s) newsletter focused on how international students see the protests: https://www.opencampusmedia.org/2020/06/08/how-international-students-see-the-protests/
Karin, it's a bit hard to hear you -- if you could speak up, please!
Kwame, you make such a great point about "international" orientation separating students into a bubble. It is so important to have ALL new students attend orientation together.
Please keep the good questions coming through the Q&A function. You can upvote others’ questions you are most interested in, too.
And as Sara pointed out about the Q&A, please upvote questions or offer your own perspectives or answers (given we’ve got hundreds of experts like all of you on the webinar)
Here’s a link to the Mills International Center at the U. Of Oregon that Sara just mentioned. https://mills.uoregon.edu/
Integration of int’l education & social justice, inspired by:Dr. Amer Ahmed - Amerfahmed.comDr. Kathryn Sorrells - Intercultural Praxis Model
Racial equity & colonization curricula by Dr. Shakti Butler world-trust.org/curriculumResource: Dr. Ahmed’s recent keynote speech at NCOREhttps://www.ncore.ou.edu/en/amer-ahmed/ register for access to recordings
Would love to hear other success stories blending intercultural and multicultural learning! Especially originating from the multicultural arena rather than from an international education office
Please do keep the good questions coming in the Q&A function. Even if we don’t get to all of them live here, Karin will look to follow up on some of them in future reporting or newsletters.
Should discussions be just about the race? Or there are sociocultural, economic, and political structures involved?

Here’s the text of that curricular requirement at Wooster: “Diversity, Power and Privilege (1 course). Students will explore the differences between individuals and groups of people, focusing on the ways difference shapes interactions between individuals and groups, and examine how power and privilege shape social situations, structures, and institutions. Diversity will be understood within the context of social categories, including race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, immigration status, social class, ability, culture, and religion (among others).” https://www.wooster.edu/academics/requirements/arts/
@Perfecto definitely think it should never just be about race - in the USA, but certainly other countries, it is difficult to disentangle (and also would leave out a lot of the nuances or underlying issues if doing so) race and class due to living under racialized capitalism. Definitely would be good to ground people in an understanding of intersectionality and critical race theory (not just the surface level thing people do of saying “intersectional identities” just to refer to people being part of multiple social categories without actually analyzing how this complicates how the person is oppressed or privileged in various settings)
Great session! I need to leave to attend a 3pm meeting. Thank you everyone! Maggie Shea
Yes, we need more transparency in admission process! Also in relation to the career outcomes & limitations.
As some have asked … these questions in the chat and the Q&A have been great. We’ll gather them and send them back out to all the registrants. Thanks again.
