About the Committee
The Writing & Critical Inquiry (WCI) Program's Antiracism and Intersectional Justice Committee seeks to center the voices of individuals who have been marginalized in pedagogical, curricular, institutional and systemic contexts to reconfigure power relations and cultivate an equitable learning, work and community environment at UAlbany.
The committee’s key goals include:
Sustained inquiry into antiracist and intersectional texts and pedagogical practices
Amplifying voices of historically marginalized populations by raising funds to bring in BIPOC and LGBTQI educators to train WCI faculty in antiracism and intersectional pedagogy
Inviting WCI students to participate in our shared inquiry and to share their experiential knowledge
Hiring and participating in the retention of more faculty of color within WCI
The committee’s work deepens and amplifies WCI’s mission to help students think critically about the world around them.
By emphasizing both reflection and tangible action, the committee puts the diversity and inclusion goals outlined in UAlbany’s Strategic Plan into practice.
