In the wake of the recent rise in Anti-Asian violence, East-Asian medicine colleges and our student, faculty, and alumni communities throughout the U.S. are sharing in the grief and outrage and grappling with what we can do.
At Pacific College the Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Committee is analyzing and addressing college community education, curriculum, faculty hiring and retention, issues around appropriation, unconscious bias, micro-aggressions, and more with regard to Equity Diversity and Inclusion in all of its facets.
Some upcoming events that may be of interest to friends of the college, with regard to Anti-Asian Violence include the following:
April 11th, 4:30-6:30pm (PST)/7:30-9:30pm (EST)
