Racial Equity in Teaching Summer Retreat

June 5-7 on the Orono Campus*

Circle containing the words "teaching" and "learning" and a Venn diagram where the three parts labelled diversity, equity and inclusion meet in a small circle labelled belonging.

Continue the conversation on racial equity in teaching! Join us for an antiracist teaching and learning retreat during which we will engage in storytelling, dialogue, creative exercises, and more. Come and share strategies as well as tools for engaging conversations about where and how race impacts teaching and learning. Modeling anti-racist teaching practices, we will dig into topics of racism, positionality, and social identity. You will learn to recognize how these factors appear in classrooms. This work will help participants identify and counteract inequitable practices and influences.  This program will include ample time for reflection, processing, and dedicated time to these challenging topics. 

Breakfast, lunch and refreshments will be provided.  Participants will receive a 250$ stipend upon completion. Anyone with a teaching role on campus is welcome to register – graduate TAs, adjunct, teaching staff, faculty and administrators.  A minimum number of registrants will be required for this retreat to run. 


9:00am – 4:30pm Monday & Tuesday,

9:00am – 12:00pm Wednesday, followed by lunch. 

Optional work, creative and reflection times will bracket these hours.  

Location and detailed agenda coming soon!
