students of color have noted
Students of Color Have Noted…

In general, the students of color are tired of the following:

  • Being made the expert on their ethnic group in classroom settings.
  • Not being heard.
  • Being singled out when someone needs an example.
  • Being ignored when they have a legitimate contribution to make or a legitimate concern to share.
  • Their worldview being devalued.

Adapted From a List by Dr. Kenneth Waters, Associate Dean, School of Theology

classroom suggestions
Classroom Suggestions
  • Learn every student's name and the name he/she prefers to be called and use the names.
  • Ask about your students' interests and experiences so you can know them as individuals rather than merely members of the group.
  • Encourage students to respond to each others' questions and comments, not just your own, to foster a sense of community.
  • Don't make assumptions about students based on what you perceive as their minority experiences and needs.

Compiled by Dr. Juanita Cole, Assistant Professor, Dept. of Psychology

cultural proficiency helps us to move from tolerance for diversity to transformation for equity
The focus on “us” and our practices

Esteem, respect, adapt

Demographics inform policy and practice

Manage, leverage, facilitate conflict

Stakeholders adapt to meet needs of others

Information integrated into policies, procedures, practices.

Cultural Proficiency helps us to moveFROM TOLERANCE FOR DIVERSITY TO TRANSFORMATION FOR EQUITY
  • Focus on “them” and their inadequacies
  • Tolerate, assimilate, acculturate
  • Demographics viewed as challenge
  • Prevent, mitigate, avoid cultural dissonance and conflict
  • Stakeholders expect or help others to assimilate
  • Information added to existing policies, procedures, practices.

discussion
Discussion

1. How might students perceive that diversity is valuable in your classroom?

2. How do you communicate that you are approachable to students?

a. How might your race/ethnicity influence students’ perceptions about your approachability?

b. How do you increase your approachability with students less likely to engage with you?
