Anti-Racism Coalition

The Anti-Racism Coalition at Rowan University meets monthly to engage faculty & staff participants in the work of anti-racism. This space, allows us to shift the responsibility for dismantling racism and systemic oppression from people of color to a collective burden as a community. We promote introspecitive exploration of personal biases, resource and toolkit development, action planning, and radical vulnerability.

Teaching the New Jersey Mandates

In 2002, the New Jersey Department of State passed The Amistad Bill (A1301) mandating that all NJ schools incorporate African-American history into their Social Studies curriculum. The Amistad Commission has developed an interactive web-based tool for prospective and current teachers to assist in creating lessons plans and raising practitioner’s cultural competency.
