Mandel School course on everyday antiracism open to CWRU faculty and staff

Mark Joseph and Jenny King, faculty members at the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences, and doctoral assistant Braveheart Gillani developed a new online/in-person hybrid course for Mandel School students, Case Western Reserve University employees and Cleveland community members. 

“Operationalizing Antiracism for Everyday Impact” is a skill-building course that provides participants with the tools, techniques and practices for effective antiracism. Participants will be equipped for a career disrupting racism in all its forms and manifestations at the internalized/intrapersonal, interpersonal, institutional and system level. The course is built around an everyday antiracism framework that has eight key elements: curiosity, structure, perception, belonging, truth, healing, restitution and power.

The course will meet Tuesday evenings from 6:30 to 8:15 p.m. starting Jan. 16. It is a two-credit course and will last for 12 weeks. View the working syllabus. Limited slots are available for the spring.

Contact Mark Joseph at if you are interested in taking the course this spring or in the future.
