Connect with students and colleagues across the School of Education to discuss these topics, and consider questions such as: How do we, as a school, want to focus on antiracism and equity for all?  How can we empower each other as current and future educators and counselors to promote equity in the field? How do we support equity and access for Black and Latinx prospective students entering higher education and invite them to share their goals as future educators and counselors?
