Public univ. sponsors social justice conference to address ‘white accountability,’ ‘microaggressions’

The University of Rhode Island sponsored a “Social Justice in Higher Education” conference, with speakers discussing topics such as “White Accountability,” “Addressing Microaggressions,” and more.

The conference was put on Wednesday by the New England College Personnel Association, with the University of Rhode Island being a co-sponsor. The focus of this year’s conference is specifically promoting “social justice education” and giving schools tips on how to educate students better on “anti-oppressive, liberatory, and critical frameworks,” according to the description.

The conference hosted various sessions based on social justice education, such as the following:

– “The Cost of Inclusion: Addressing the Class Struggle When Engaging Students Outside the Classroom”

– “Supporting a Culture of White Accountability on Campus”

– “When the Conversation Gets Quiet — 10 Ways to Facilitate Discussions on Sensitive Social Justice Issues with First Year Students”

It would be fun to be the “invisible man” and just lurk at the conference, looking at the attendees (the academic equivalent to “people of WalMart”), and taping the presentations (the profound ignorance laced with diatribes could be most entertaining).
