Rhodes Responds Series Seeks to Offer Public Expertise on Topics Related to COVID-19 | Rhodes News Rhodes College is offering a series of four free Zoom webinars open to the general public. These webinars will take place on Wednesday evenings, and feature panels of college and community experts who will address various aspects of the pandemic and field questions from the audience.
Faculty in the Department of Psychology unequivocally condemn white supremacy, racism, and police brutality. We believe it requires intentional and consistent anti-racist work on the part of each individual to dismantle systemic inequities suffered by the Black, Indigenous, and People of Color community. We are committed to this work.
Furthermore, we affirm the statements and plans of action made by the Association for Psychological Science and the American Psychological Association.
As psychologists, our discipline has a track record of examining the effects of racism, prejudice, and countless other dimensions of our lived experience on our psychological and physical well-being. APS has provided summaries of some of this research as a starting point here. However, we acknowledge that we are still learning and growing, and we do not assume to have all of the answers.
As educators, we commit to continue learning and listening from a position of cultural humility. We will strive to incorporate anti-racist practices within and beyond our classrooms. We re-affirm our departmental climate statement:
The Psychology Department at Rhodes College is committed to creating an academic climate that is safe, respectful, and appreciative of all students, staff, and faculty regardless of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, size, socioeconomic background, religion, spirituality, physical ability, mental ability, or any other aspect of one’s identity. We believe that a climate of mutual respect allows us to ask difficult questions and to participate in honest discussions about difficult issues, even in the context of strong disagreement. Creating this kind of open, honest, and respectful climate is our mutual responsibility.
Here are the statements from APS and APA:
Here are some resources as a starting point:
At Rhodes, Black lives matter and we are committed to do our part to create a more just campus, city, and world.
Friday, June 5, Rhodes is observing a day of action and learning meant to be a tipping point towards more sustained racial justice work. It is a day to share ways to engage in work against white supremacy and police brutality and a day to amplify the voices of those most affected.
Chaplain Beatrix will be facilitating and sharing these resources and actions on the Rhodes Instagram throughout the day. You can send meaningful suggestions to her at [email protected].
