Watch this Virtual Roundtable

Join this moderated discussion on how systemic issues of racism/anti-Blackness may manifest on campus in the upcoming term, and how to most effectively support our Black community members during the current climate of unrest, heightened racial tensions, COVID-19, and the call to action to dismantle systemic racism on our campuses and beyond. Panelists will include professionals with mental health and student affairs backgrounds.

This program is offered in partnership by ACUHO-I & NIRSA, and in collaboration with AUCCCO.

** Our virtual roundtables begin with brief introductory remarks by our panelists, and then the opportunity for attendees to actively engage in the program by making comments and asking questions in real-time. This roundtable is designed to be discussion-based.

If you have an idea or would like to facilitate an upcoming caucus or forum please email nirsa@nirsa.org
