Overview of 2-Day Summer Intensive

Learning Objectives:

  1. To explore the roots of structural inequality, defined as "conditions in which individuals and groups of people are attributed an unequal status in relation to others."
  2. To discuss real life examples of how to address structure inequalities using both tools of the Community-Based Participatory Research/Approach (CBPR/A) and Community Action Strategies.

Highlights of the Summer Intensive

  • Groundwater: In this lively and participatory presentation, facilitators will use stories and data to present a perspective that racism is fundamental structural in nature. By examining characteristics of modern-day racial inequity, the presentation introduces participants to an analysis they will find immediately helpful and relevant.
  • Tour of Historic Stagville: Step back into time to capture a glimpse of the duality of experiences where inequity, lack of diversity and inclusion are an everyday occurrence.
  • Strategies for Leadership, Transformation and Equity: Using the Tools of Community-Based Participatory Research Approach (CBPR/A):
