IAAR-SLATE’s Coursework Component builds a network of courses to engage the program’s topics through student classroom experiences. For 2020-2021, more than 25 faculty have connected their courses to IAAR-SLATE by agreeing to include on their syllabi three assignments on the intersecting topics of race, racism and racial equity.  These specific assignments are shared across all IAAR-SLATE courses. They are a way to connect students across diverse classes, expanding the dialogue beyond a single classroom.  Additionally, through a variety of convenings and activities, students in IAAR-SLATE courses have an opportunity to meet authors, filmmakers and other special guests who are directly related to the material assigned in their classes.
