'IT’S A STRUGGLE, IT’S A JOURNEY, IT’S A MOUNTAIN THAT YOU GOTTA CLIMB': INCLUSIVE EXCELLENCE AND THE STRATEGIC EMBRACE OF BLACK MALE STUDENTS AND FACULTY
Visiting scholar Rachel Griffin will present "'It’s a Struggle, It’s a Journey, It’s a Mountain that You Gotta Climb': Inclusive Excellence and the Strategic Embrace of Black Male Students and Faculty" from 10:30 a.m. to noon Monday, Oct. 27, in the Charleston/Mattoon Room, MLK Jr. Union. In 2010-2011, Griffin was awarded a Seed Grant titled "Recruitment, Retention and the Recovery of Black MaleVoices: Creating Intergenerational Conversations to Fuel Academic Success" at Southern Illinois University. A broad array of narrative data emerged from black male participants who described their educational experiences as undergraduate students, graduate students and faculty on traditionally and predominantly white campuses. In total, there were five focus groups involving 29 black male students and 11 interviews with black male faculty. Participant voices importantly mark black males as intellectual, insightful and invested; affirm and validate the realness of systemic oppression (e.g., black misandry, stereotype threat and microaggressions as manifestations of gendered racism); and call for foundational change from informed standpoints.

'THE DAY THE MOUNTAINS MOVE HAS COME': INCLUSIVE EXCELLENCE, SOCIAL JUSTICE AND THE HUMANIZATION OF BEST PRACTICES
Visiting scholar Rachel Griffin will present a plenary talk, "'The Day the Mountains Move has Come': Inclusive Excellence, Social Justice and the Humanization of Best Practices," from 3 to 4 p.m. Monday, Oct. 27, in the Lecture Hall, Doudna Fine Arts Center. As a female faculty member of color and first-generation college student who earned all of her degrees at traditionally and predominantly white institutions, Griffin will struggle in/with/through the painful and prideful experiences of students, staff and faculty who represent marginalized identity groups on college campuses. Anticipating an audience eager to engage with difficult topics, her keynote focuses on the following questions: How do systemic privilege and marginalization (e.g., racism, sexism, heterosexism, classism, ableism, etc.) stifle the ability of campuses to flourish? What does an inclusive and healthy campus climate look like? How can Eastern Illinois University work toward becoming an emblem of inclusion? These questions and others will be raised as points of contemplation around which possibilities, opposed to answers, will be offered. To register for this session, please go here. For information, please call 581-7051 or email facdev@eiu.edu.
