Equity Education Program

Description

The Equity Education Program ("Equity Ed") is an awareness, advocacy, and practicial-skills certification program for educators and administrators working with individuals of marginalized population groups and in dominant-narrative systems.

Consisting of multiple modules of increasing content complexity and participant involvement, this program covers topics including: intersections of racial, ethnic, and cultural identity with socioeconomic position, nationality, religion, and others as well as practical skills for developing interpersonal relationships and social advancement for marginalized persons within dominant-narrative systems.

Mission

Equity Ed seeks to build a more inclusive Missouri State University by offering a program that effectively advances participants from a state of knowledge about Access, Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, & Justice from “limited knowledge,” to “general knowledge,” to “practical skillsets,” to “anti-bias, anti-racist praxis.”

Vision

Equity Ed will be an HR-sponsored Learning & Development program for faculty & staff seeking continuing education regarding interpersonal engagement and institutional-experience enrichment skills in relation to marginalized identity students, faculty, staff, and visitors of Missouri State University.

Equity Ed will be a semester-long, course-style program comprised of progressively problem-centered curriculum providing expanded understanding of intersectional identity experiences, advanced-level advocacy, strategic planning and research, and involvement Modules from external stakeholders and presenters.
