Faculty & Staff Resources
These links are helpful for faculty and staff who want to engage in antiracist and inclusive practices across different aspects of their work. Curating this list of resources is an on-going process, and we welcome suggestions for new links and/or feedback on the resources provided.
Racial Equity Professional Development Opportunities
As a member of the Liberal Arts Colleges Racial Equity Leadership Alliance (LACRELA), Haverford College has an opportunity for up to eight members of the staff and/or faculty to participate in LACRELA's monthly "eConvenings," which will address different topics focused on diversity, equity, and inclusion. These live, synchronous, experiences will be held virtually. The experiences generally last about three hours each.
If you're interested, please review the LACRELA Interest Form to view the session topics. Please feel free to indicate your interest in different sessions. We will review submissions and reach out to let respondents know whether they have been selected to participate; we will work to enable the participation of as many community members as possible over the course of the year.
Contact Franklyn Cantor with any questions or to access materials and recordings from the year's slate of eConvenings.
Haverford College has an institutional membership with The National Center for Faculty Development & Diversity (NCFDD), a professional development, training, and mentoring community for academics. They offer resources to help faculty navigate a wide-range of professional challenges and opportunities across all career stages.
Asian / American Identity and Anti-Asian Racism: Conversation with Friend in Residence, Mr. Mas Nakawatase, Human Rights Activist & Organizer
Anti-Asian hate crimes are on the rise since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Why? What can we do about it? The student facilitators will be asking Mr. Masaru Edmund Nakawatase, Friend in Residence, questions such as: “Is anti-Asian sentiment in the US new?,” “How has Asian American activism changed overtime?,” “How are you navigating being an activist during the pandemic?,” and “What does it mean to be in solidarity with other minority groups, such as Black and Asian solidarity?”

- Pedagogy Circles: This forum is intended to support cross-constituency dialogue around developing inclusive, equitable, and anti-racist approaches to teaching and learning across campus contexts (within and beyond classrooms). During the Spring-2021 semester, Pedagogy Circles will again be facilitated by pairs of Teaching and Learning Institute (TLI) student consultants. All sessions will be run as semi-structured conversations that strive to integrate the questions and insights all participants bring to the sessions.
