Community Read #3 of 'Hispanic Serving Institutions in Practice'

Please join the Decolonizing the Academy Committee for the third Community Read of Professor Gina A Garcia's Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs) in Practice: Defining "Servingness" at HSIs.

Zoom: https://cccconfer.zoom.us/j/3438964877

This discussion of Chapter 6 "Re-Designing the Gateway College Algebra Course with Inclusive and Asset-based Pedagogy" will be co-facilitated by Jamar London, Colleen McGraw, John Quevedo, and Aaron Simo, esteemed members of our Math Department, and Maria Munoz, Dean of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.

Chapter 6 focuses on strategies implemented at UC Santa Cruz to transform entry-level Math courses into gateways rather than gatekeepers.

All Community Read events are open to everyone on campus, even if you haven't done the reading! If you cannot attend, you can send questions to: herbert_shannon@smc.edu The event will be recorded and posted to the Decolonizing the Academy website.

Our goal for the Community Read is to create a collaborative campus-wide space to share information and clarify our goals and values as an institution.
