How Mindfulness Can Support Skillful Anti-Racism in Higher Education

UNCW’s Interdisciplinary Research Seminar Series (IRSS) on Mindfulness welcomes Beth Berila, Ph.D., Director of the Gender & Women’s Studies Program and Professor in the Ethnic, Gender, & Women’s Studies Department at St. Cloud State University, to help us explore how mindfulness can support us in skillfully engaging anti-racist teaching, learning, and community-building. Mindful practices, when situated within a social justice frame, can support BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, & People of Color) communities in healing from oppression and unlearning internalized oppression, while helping White people overcome common reactions and barriers to dismantling the power dynamics of institutionalized racism. The seminar will offer practical strategies for anti-racism in our lives, our classrooms, our campus work, and our communities.

Date/Time: Tuesday, November 10 from 5:30 - 7:30 pm

Open to: faculty, staff, students, and community members

Register for Dr. Berila's seminar
