The Ethnic Studies Educators’ Academy plans to train educators in interdisciplinary Ethnic Studies and contribute to a collaborative teaching guide in the process. By the end of each annual academy, educators will co-produce this publicly accessible Ethnic Studies teaching guide on racial justice topics, emphasizing transformative, community-centered pedagogies, with components for use at the college level. By the end of the three-year project, DRJ will build a sustainable network of Ethnic Studies practitioners and pathways across the educational continuum, including community colleges, four-year universities, graduate programs, and community centers—and connect them all through the community-focused projects at the People’s Academies.
The Ethnic Studies Educators' Academy Committee selects participants through an application process in the Summer of every grant year.
