Best Practices for Supporting Our Black Students

Friday, October 4 - 2:00-3:00 in D116

Facilitators: Dean Marietta Turner, Donna Tanner-Harold, and Evelyn Reynolds


Join us for this First Friday workshop in October. Dean Turner (Dean of Students), Donna Tanner-Harold (Counselor and Director of the Black Student SUCCESS project), and Evelyn Reynolds (Associate Professor of Sociology in SSHS) will discuss strategies for improving Black Student success in our teaching and learning. The panel will discuss some of the challenges they’ve seen in their work as well as share success stories based on their own experience from around our college. Good teaching is just good teaching, for all students. But it is important that we are cognizant of cultures and backgrounds in our work and the more we know, the better our individualized instruction can be. I hope you’ll join us on Friday, October 4th at 2:00 for this important workshop!
