Beyond Diversity: What Does Anti-Racism in Honors Look Like?

Since the acceleration of the Black Lives Matter movement in 2020, students all over the country have demanded that we push past existing diversity and inclusion efforts and begin doing the hard work of dismantling racism. But what does that look like in Honors? In this workshop, the Diversity Fellows at BSU’s HC will briefly share their vision for what anti-racism in Honors might look like, before turning it over to participants to work together on their own vision and action-items to take home. With an emphasis on anti-racist conversations, curriculum, programming, and policy, this workshop should give participants the tools and inspiration think about Honors as a place where racism can be challenged head-on and the values of inclusive excellence are lived out.
