Join us in a BIPOC Faculty Counterspace to Inform Transformation in the Academy
IThrive Collective Definitions
*Counterspaces are sites of resistance and adaptive response that support and enable individuals from marginalized groups to collectively push back on dominant narratives. Learn more at https://www.campus-counterspaces.com.
**Black, Indigenous, and People of Color. We are inspired, in part, by the work and design of the BIPOC Project.
Based on discussion with IThrive Collective members, the IThrive planning team has set the following agenda for 2022-2023. Virtual Gatherings are intended as working meetings to identify sites and strategies for collective action. Virtual Coffee Hours are intended as support spaces for BIPOC faculty who are seeking community, mutual aid, and relationship building. In addition, when possible, we'll engage in informal meet-ups at national meetings to further community building.
