A sense of belonging, the experience of being valued and respected, is essential to academic success and well-being. Thus equity-minded pedagogies must intentionally address the lack of a sense of belonging that students of color often experience on a predominantly white campus.

This Magna Online Seminar explores two evidence-based interventions—normalizing struggle and values affirmation—demonstrated to close the education debt for BIPoC students. Participants are provided with the tools for not only making changes to their pedagogical practices but to also to contribute to dismantling barriers at the institutional level.

What are the learning goals?

Upon completion of this seminar, you’ll be able to:

  • Define “belonging”
  • Identify two or three practices that can be incorporated to enhance a sense of belonging for BIPoC students
  • Articulate ways in which the lack of belonging among minoritized students is a consequence of the structure and climate of an institution

Who should attend?

  • Faculty
  • Educational Developers
  • Instructional Designers
  • Academic Leaders

Why you don’t want to miss this!

Creating a sense of belonging is an ongoing process for all higher education professionals, especially faculty. It is imperative to provide an ongoing counternarrative to stereotype threat, micro and macro aggressions, imposter syndrome, lack of familiarity with American higher ed, and the many ways in which BIPoC and other minoritized individuals are systematically disadvantaged.

This Magna Online Seminar helps faculty who may not be aware of actions taken or not taken that affect how students from historically disadvantaged backgrounds experience a lack of belonging at college, and ways in which this lack of belonging is a consequence of the structure and climate of an institution. Increasing awareness is the first step in an ongoing process of creating an equitable and inclusive teaching and learning environment.
