OUE Equity Collective Event: A Keynote from Dr. Bettina Love

On behalf of the OUE Equity Collective, we are writing to request your attendance at our upcoming speaker event – a keynote from Dr. Bettina Love (https://bettinalove.com/)

We are so excited to be welcoming Dr. Love, virtually, to Georgia Tech!

More about Dr. Love –

Dr. Bettina L. Love is an award-winning author and the Athletic Association Endowed Professor at the University of Georgia. Her writing, research, teaching, and educational advocacy work meet at the intersection of education reform, anti-racism, carceral studies, abolition, and Black joy. The aim of her scholarship is twofold: firstly, to advance how the field of education understands and critiques the systemic and structural racism of public education within the U.S.; and secondly, to advocate for abolitionist approaches in the field of education that seek new possibilities for educational justice. In the pursuit of making her scholarship a reality, she works with activists, communities, youth, families, and school districts to build communal, civically-engaged schools rooted in the aspirations of abolitionist strategies that love and affirm Black and Brown children. In 2020, Dr. Love co-founded the Abolitionist Teaching Network (ATN). ATN’s mission is simple: develop and support teachers and parents to fight injustice within their schools and communities. In 2020, Dr. Love was also named a member of the Old 4th Ward Economic Security Task Force with the Atlanta City Council. The goal of the Task Force is to advance dialogue and form tangible solutions for guaranteed income. Read more about Bettina Love.

To prepare for Dr. Love’s talk, attendees are invited to consider reading her book https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/622408/we-want-to-do-more-than-survive-by-bettina-love/

Liam's Legacy Inclusive Teaching Symposium

Presented by Serve-Learn-Sustain and the Center for Teaching and Learning, in partnership with School of History and Sociology (through a grant from the Gertrude and William C. Wardlaw Fund in support of the Conference on Human Rights, Changes and Challenges).

Faculty are invited to join Serve-Learn-Sustain (SLS) and the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) for the Liam's Legacy Inclusive Teaching Symposium.  As educators, we all share in the responsibility to create inclusive learning environments.  Even if the content we teach doesn't directly address issues of social identity, the impacts of historical and current exclusion of and violence against BIPOC communities are felt in all corners of the academy.  We all recognize the urgency and the enormity of the problem, yet many of us feel unsure of what actions we can take as educators to make higher education more just.

SLS and CTL bring you a day long symposium seeking to equip anyone who teaches with strategies and resources to create belonging and inclusivity in their classrooms - of any size, disciplinary focus, and model!  Topics will include:

  • Best practices....from small and simple to big and ambitious
  • Student perspectives on creating a welcoming classroom
  • Community-engage and culturally-sensitive teaching
  • Caring in the classroom: supporting the students' wellbeing

At the end of the day, every participant will be invited to apply for a course development grant from Serve-Learn-Sustain, earmarked especially for symposium attendees.

The symposium will be offered virtually (no limit on attendees) and in-person (20 attendee limit).


About Liam Rattray & Liam's Legacy:

The Liam's Legacy Symposium honors the memory of Liam Rattray, an outstanding and socially-committed Georgia Tech Honors Program student who was tragically killed by a drunk driver just a few weeks after his graduation, in 2011.  We mourn his death, but we also celebrate his life in this annual event that carries his name and draws upon his legacy of engagement and activism.
