CARED Goes to Halifax

On Tuesday, May 7th, members of CARED participated in The International Campus: Experiences and Approaches for Student Success symposium hosted at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Unlike other symposium presenters, the CARED representatives were not present on site but were, thanks to technology, able to participate and be present virtually.  Through an interactive, scenario-based workshop, entitled "Storming the Citadel of Institutional Racism:  Standing Up for Students’ Success," participants were invited to recognize and articulate the realities and patterns of institutional, systemic racism and to understand how micro-institutional complicities militate against empathy for students and against their full educational experience. The feedback received from session participants and organizers was very positive and there is much interest in the topics presented.  Although this was CARED's first online presentation/workshop, it will definitely not be its last.

If you would like CARED to present (online or in person) at an upcoming conference, professional development day, inservice, etc., please send your request to cared@shaw.ca
