With the rise of campus antisemitism, student affairs leaders must both respond to incidents and take steps to proactively foster a welcoming environment for Jewish students and all students. This series focuses on supporting Jewish students and addressing antisemitism through an anti-oppression lens and as part of a commitment to equity and justice. Facilitators will share about diversity among Jewish students and their intersectional identities; build understanding about antisemitism, how it impacts students, and how it relates to broader justice movements; and share strategies to support participants in identifying action steps.
This course consists of three live sessions with asyncronous work and learning that allows participants to learn more about themselves ad how to support Jewish students on campus.
All live sessions will be held in NASPA's Online Learning Community through Zoom Meeting.
