JEDI Wednesdays

Join CEETL in LIB 242 once a month on Wednesdays to discuss teaching through an equity lens. Grounded in the exchange of perspectives and ideas, JEDI Wednesdays is a series of in-person discussions that focus on inclusivity and belonging in our teaching practices.

A $50 stipend will be awarded to faculty attendees for each session. GTAs will receive $20.

Due to CSU policy, the following appointments will not be eligible to receive a stipend: MPPs, Staff, FERP faculty, and individuals not actively employed at SF State. 

Stipends are only valid with an active teaching appointment during the time of work and payment. If the participating faculty member is found to not have an active appointment, stipends become invalid.

All stipends are processed through payroll and are subject to tax, so the final amount and timing for stipend payments may vary according to individual tax rates and employment status with the university. To monitor incoming payments, we recommend you turn on your bank notifications to get alerts on your accounts.

First-Gen Student Support

Wednesday, February 15, 2023, 10-11 am with Dr. Crystal Wong

At SF State, nearly 36% of undergraduates are the first in their families to attend college. Let's discuss the scholarship on engagement and share equitable strategies to support our work with first-generation students.

Alternative Assets and Community Cultural Wealth in Academia

Wednesday, March 8, 2023, 10-11 am with Dr. Kira Donnell

Dr. Tara Yosso describes Community Cultural Wealth as “an array of knowledges, skills, abilities and contacts possessed and used by Communities of Color to survive and resist racism and other forms of oppression.” Students of color use these forms of wealth to navigate, survive, and thrive in educational institutions that were not created to support their positionalities and experiences. Join us for a discussion of how we recognize and support the wealth of community resources students bring to the classroom.

Student-Teacher Communication: Turning Fear into Collaboration

Wednesday, April 12, 2023, 10-11 am with Dr. Kasturi Ray

Students are often reluctant to participate in class, much less communicate when they need help. In turn, instructors’ own motivation in the classroom can flag in the face of spotty attention. How can we make students more comfortable reaching out to instructors? How can instructors make help available when students do not ask for aid? What feedback/reflection exercises might help with this?

Transforming Hispanic Serving Institutions in Practice

Wednesday, May 10, 2023, 10-11 am with Dr. Aaron Sachowitz

With over 37% of SF State undergraduates identifying as Latinx, SF State is a federally designated Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI). What does it mean to serve Latinx students at SF State? We will discuss Dr. Gina Garcia’s Transforming Hispanic Serving Institutions framework (2023) with an eye toward identifying curricular and pedagogical interventions that can transform SF State for equity and justice in service to not only Latinx students, but all students. Join us for a discussion that grounds HSI practice in theories of organizational change.
