Critical Race Studies in Public Affairs Alumni Panel November 25th, 5:00-6:30pm, PAB 2355 RSVP to Marcie Hale firstname.lastname@example.org by November 18th The “Critical Race Studies in Public Affairs” course was started in the Luskin School (then called the School of Public Affairs) in 2006 by a group of Social Welfare, Urban Planning and Public Policy students who were eager to incorporate more content on the impact of structural racism into the curriculum. The goal of the CRS Working Group was to institutionalize a course that would provide the space for students to talk openly about these subjects, and to focus on the structural forces that contribute to racial, gender, and economic inequality. Currently in its 9th year, the CRS course provides students with an opportunity to discuss the systemic underpinnings of racialization, the importance of intersectionality, and the experiences of marginalized populations within our fields. Please join us on November 25, from 5:00-6:30pm for an exciting panel of CRS course alumni who will discuss the impact of the CRS course on their current work and career.
