Anti-Racism Reading Group
The aims of this group are to gather ideas for having better discussions about race and racism; to think about the ways we as faculty can identify and interrupt institutional structures that perpetuate white supremacy; and to consider how we can modify our own behaviors and pedagogies to dismantle racism in our classrooms. The Spring 2020 reading group starts on Friday, March 13 at 3:30pm. We'll discuss Robin DiAngelo's White Fragility: Why It's So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism.

LGBTQ+ Faculty & Staff Network
The group is open to all faculty and staff that identify as LGBTQ+.
Some possible ideas for the role of the LGBTQ+Network would be to offer social and professional support to the LGBTQ+ community at Loyola by holding coffee or lunch meetings, offering peer critiques and feedback on research/writing, sharing resources for classes, working together to support LGBTQ+ students and all students at the university, and organize other events across campus to assist with creating an even more inclusive campus community.
Please connect with us and share your experiences of LGBTQ+ life at Loyola.
We look forward to meeting all of you.
