How might our classroom service learning practices subtly (and not-so-subtly) promote racism? What is our responsibility as educators to address racial inequity through community engaged teaching? How can we encourage our students to engage with humility and reflection?

Join Ross Wantland from the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, and Margarita Garcia Rojas, We CU Student Support Coordinator, as we explore how racism and social injustice can emerge in service learning classrooms. Participants will discuss ways to minimize racism in volunteer and service work and walk away with strategies to incorporate anti-racist practices in their classroom. 

This training is open to all instructors at the University of Illinois, including graduate teaching assistants. Space is limited, so register today. For more information, contact We CU at

This event is hosted by We CU in collaboration with IHSI and OVCDEI.
