I. Reflection & Action: The Year Following George Floyd's Murder

Tuesday June 1, 2021, 10:15-11:15am (Pacific Time)

It has been one year since the murder of George Floyd (May 25, 2020) and a little over a month since former police officer Derek Chauvin was convicted of Floyd's murder (April 20, 2021). Chauvin was the officer who knelt on Floyd's neck for 9 minutes and 29 seconds, which lead to worldwide protests and a call for justice.

Join me as I reflect on the past 12 months, with a focus on the actions that my CIENCIA team has taken since we issued our statement in support of Black lives, which was shared with our campus community in June 2020. Future directions for supporting equity-based policies and practices on our college campus will be discussed.

II. A STEM Perspective: Culturally Responsive Teaching

June 1, 2021, 1:30-3:00pm (Pacific Time)

Dr. Jalaal Hayes will engage us in a timely discussion on culturally responsive teaching in STEM. Dr. Hayes is a STEM educator and entrepreneur in the field of chemistry, specializing in hydrogen energy storage and production- renewable energy technology.

Upon earning his doctorate in applied chemistry at the youthful age of 22, Dr. Hayes became a K-12 science teacher, which taught him many lessons about culturally responsive teaching. Dr. Hayes has continued to utilize a culturally responsive pedagogical approach as a chemistry professor at Lincoln University and is eager to share his experiences with you.

Dr. Hayes is set to speak for 90 minutes, with audience Q & A, so please bring your questions! This session is part of *CIENCIA's 2021 Summer Institute. See you there!
