FIX presentation to focus on Asian American and Pacific Islanders

Update | Tuesday, April 13, 2021

The Office of Academic Affairs Instructional Success Committee is proud to announce the April presentation for the Faculty Idea Exchange (FIX) Virtual Lecture Series on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the Classroom. The series provides monthly professional development presentations leading up to the 2021 Faculty Idea Exchange.

Myths and Reality: Discussing Asian American and Pacific Islanders in the Classroom will be presented by Steve Kaczmarek, professor of English. Over the past few years, anti-Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) racism seems to have exploded. For many AAPI, the racism goes back decades – it’s the reporting that has increased. As media reports continue to shed light on the long-standing bigotry facing AAPI, many faculty members have asked how they can incorporate more discussion on AAPI in their classrooms. Kaczmarek will share insights on the myths and realities, including AAPI history, stereotypes, and contributions to civil rights, as well as helpful resources on the AAPI experience.

The event will be held on Thursday, April 29 from 1-2 p.m.
