Learning Communities

As an extension of the Centering Equity Series (CES), the Office of Antiracism, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion is launching a dialogue-based series to further explore issues of equity. Faculty and staff members who have previously attended CES sessions will be invited to apply to a part of this 6-week series to deepen their equity-mindedness.

Spring 2021 Learning Community: Whiteness

Through the Jesuit tradition of discernment, this 6-week dialogue-based series invites white-identified faculty and staff members participants to establish a deeper understanding of their white identity in relation to BIPOC and develop skills to confront the impacts of whiteness in their personal and professional day-to-day life. This series will be lead by two USF white-identified facilitators.

CES Learning Community participants will:

  • Critically examine their relationship to whiteness through self-reflection, peer-based dialogue, and curated materials.
  • Reimagine what white-allyship looks like through an equity-minded framework.

This learning community will meet weekly on Tuesdays from 4:00-5:30 pm on the following days:

  • March 23
  • March 30
  • April 6
  • April 13
  • April 20
  • April 27


Due to limited capacity, USF faculty and staff members interested in participating in this learning community are welcome to apply to be apart of this series. The deadline to apply is Thursday, March 10th by 5:00 pm. Applicants will be informed about their participation during the week of March 15th.
