Becoming Community Workshop Series

This series extends the work of the first Mellon grant on inclusive practices. Instead of solely relying upon outside scholars, we draw primarily upon the knowledge and expertise of resident experts.

We hope that this series will spur important conversations, mutual sharing, meaningful engagement, and help us all to do better together.
