    CLIF Grant Call for Proposals

    This year’s CLIF call is the Role of Literacy in Higher Education. As the academic sector slowly emerges from three years of complexity, rapid innovation under duress, and even chaos, the time seems right to turn our attention to a topic that has always been central to formal education at every level – but which has become more complex and diversified in recent years. We invite proposals that deal with literacy in higher education in innovative ways from diverse disciplinary, interdisciplinary, and multidisciplinary points of view. Read about past CLIF recipients and their projects.
    Deadline: Wednesday March 15, 2023.

  1. Anti-Black Racism Teaching and Learning Series

    Beyond Diversity by Courageous Conversation Global Foundation

    Instructor: Madame Athena Chang
    Schedule: April 19-20, 2023, 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
    Location: In-person, TBD
    Beyond Diversity is our compassionate curriculum to build community, launch innovation, and navigate the predictable pitfalls in interracial, multi-cultural conversations about race. Powerful and personally transforming, this in-person, two-day seminar helps leaders, employees, and organizations understand the impact of race on their lives, their work, and their overall growth. Interactive and stirring exercises strengthen participants’ critical consciousness of race and lead them to investigate the role that racism plays in institutionalizing disparities. Most importantly, it models and teaches a protocol for discussing race in ways that are productive, insightful, and generative.
    Duration: This is a full two days of consecutive in-person training, including breaks. Lunch and refreshments will provided.

The workshop will consider aspects that can create or reduce barriers such as delivery method (online, in-person, hybrid), assessments, physical environment, and views on disability in post-secondary. Participants will also join in the discussion on how the community can collectively promote accessibility and inclusion for all.
