Student Voices

What does effective teaching look like to you?

"I can never stress how important cultivating spaces where marginalized folk are listened to and respected is. There have been so many instances where I have felt silenced both academically and socially on campus. The spaces where I have experienced the most healing, radical truth-telling, and transformative learning were intentional in ensuring that marginalized voices are not only listened to but valued."
