Institutional racism and the implications for faculties of education


On September 30, (#OrangeShirtDay) Dr. Jerome Cranston (#UREdu Dean and Professor) was keynote lecturer for the University of Manitoba’s Distinguished Lecturer Virtual Series.  Cranston addressed how amid the current period of racial reckoning, those responsible for teacher preparation, preservice and in-service education, need to confront and (re)consider how higher education has reified systemic racism.

Fall Faculty Retreat

#UREdu faculty and staff gathered via Zoom today for the annual fall retreat. After starting the retreat in a good way with songs, prayers, and smudging by Emerging-Elder-in-Residence Joseph Naytowhow, and a welcome from Dean Jerome Cranston, faculty and staff engaged in a circle time of sharing and support. Following this discussion, faculty and staff were informed about “Foundations Postures: Use of a Good Chair” with Ashley Johnson and then “Mindfulness and Self-massage” with Megan Hoskins. A supportive community and attention to wellness are essential to the success and support of the students we serve, especially during this time of remote working, teaching and learning.

Alumna Monique Salud (’19)

Alumna Monique Salud (’19), who now teaches French Immersion at École Traditions Elementary School, highly recommends attending this event and keeping an open mind to the possibilities:

Salud says, “I was very set on just visiting one booth in particular. But my friends told me to be open minded and visit other booths. If I didn’t listen to them I wouldn’t have gotten a contract before convocation!”
