This is the 10th Teach-In, entitled Power, Privilege and Difficult Dialogues. The original idea of holding a teach-in at GVSU in Winter 2014 was motivated by a number of campus indicators that prompted the desire to improve inclusion and equity outcomes on campus. Early teach-ins were so well-received that the University Academic Senate and Student Senate voted unanimously to sponsor this event on a yearly basis. 

The purpose of the Teach-In is for mutual education among students, faculty and staff and is intended to address topics related to inequality and systems of oppression, as well as social justice and liberation. The broad learning objectives of Power, Privilege, and Difficult Dialogues are to raise awareness, inform, create dialogue, and motivate action.  

We especially encourage contributions with an intersectional framework that takes into account the various ways that race, class, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, etc. impact lived experience.  

On behalf of UAS (University Academic Senate) and the Student Senate,

Karen Gipson (PHY & IRIS), Faculty Lead for 2022 Teach-in

Sponsored by UAS, Student Senate, and the Division of Inclusion & Equity; with financial support from the Inclusion & Equity Institute, the Office of the Provost, the Division of Student Affairs, and the Division of Enrollment Development and Educational Outreach
