Equity and Justice
The E&J CoP commenced with the 2021 inaugural cohort of the CUIMC Anti-Racist Educator Institute (AREI) and its associated Community of Practice (ARECP). This program was hosted collaboratively by the University’s Center for Teaching and Learning, the CUIMC Office of Faculty Professional Development, and IHPE and was designed for school and departmental leaders charged with implementing curricular and pedagogical reforms in diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). The ARECP convene a community of practice committed to facilitating anti-racist change in the education programs across all schools at CUIMC. The twenty-six ARECP participants meet monthly for training, implementing the pilot training in their departments, and bringing back their experience to the group to share best practices and plan continuous quality improvement. An additional training is planned for spring/summer.
