Gender Inclusive Practices for the Classroom | Monday, October 3, 2022, 12:30 – 1:30pm, Virtual

Loyola students identify across a full spectrum of gender identities and gender expressions. This session will highlight ways in which faculty, administrators, and staff can cultivate gender-inclusive teaching and learning environments for students of all genders and respond to the harmful impact of gender stereotyping and misgendering on student learning. Participants will engage with key concepts in inclusive teaching and will be equipped with tools to help them develop inclusive strategies that support all curriculum, policies, classroom facilitation, and interactions with students. Open to all students, faculty, staff, and administrators.

Facilitators: Emalee Quickel and Marianna Carlucci

Commitment to Justice Panel 2022: Indigenous Justice| Monday, October 3, 2022, 4:00PM, 4th Floor Program Room

Dr. Maria Yellow Horse Braveheart (Hunkpapa/Oglala Lakota) calls for four steps that help bring justice into Jesuit, Catholic history in relation to the indigenous people of this country. Truth-telling, understanding, acknowledging the pain, and facing trauma make it possible to forge a new future. In the case of our own Loyola context, Fr. Andrew White was a Jesuit who introduced Catholicism to Piscataway people when he arrived with Europeans in St. Mary’s, Maryland, and who developed strong ties with the Piscataway. How can Loyola understand our location and history in relation to indigenous communities in Baltimore and Maryland? How can we support community partners who are committed to indigenous justice?

Come hear from people who speak from experience and discuss how we may contribute to positive change in Baltimore and beyond.

  • Moderator: Janine Holc
  • Panelists Anjela Barnes (Piscataway), Ashley Minner (Lumbee), and Julia King
  • Commentator: Rodney Parker

Sponsored by DSS, Department of Communication, President's Committee on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, Campus Ministry, CCSJ, Julio Fine Arts Gallery, Office of the Provost/VPAA, Messina, and Loyola's Commitment to Justice Committee.
