Black Lives Matter supporters demonstrating at LMU

The Anti-Racism Project is rooted in our Catholic, Jesuit, and Marymount identity and university mission, where we regard and treat each other with respect, recognizing the inherent dignity and immutable humanity of all peoples, made in the image of God.  We are called to be persons for and with others, acting out of our faith—inclusive of our varied religious traditions and worldviews—towards social justice for all.

Overview of The Anti-Racism Project (Jennifer Abe, VP for Intercultural Affairs)

Details in Cabinet Corner; September 8, 2020

LMU’s Anti-Racism Project invites and challenges members of the LMU community to engage in a collective commitment to anti-racism at multiple levels (e.g., institution-wide, unit-level, individual) and through different modalities (e.g., dialogue, workshops, reading, personal and communal reflection, prayer, examination of data, etc.). Anti-racism presents each of us with particular personal challenges, given our various cultural realities, social positions, religious traditions/personal worldviews, and lived experiences. Each of us is responsible for growing into anti-racism from where we are. Moving towards anti-racism as an institution, however, means that we commit to using our varied roles, training, experiences and perspectives to identify systemic issues, problem-solve, and hold our units accountable as we implement solutions and move our institution forward in a lifelong process of learning.

Register for an Implicit Bias Workshop

LMU’s Implicit Bias Initiative, which launched in October 2016, remains an important focus for the Office of Intercultural Affairs. Our IB workshops help administrators, faculty, staff, and students achieve bias literacy; encourage administrators, faculty, staff, and students to use their new knowledge by engaging in intentional behavioral changes that reduce the activation and application of implicit bias; and supports a change in cultural norms across all components of LMU’s environment. 

Individuals can contribute to a culture and climate of inclusive excellence by attending a workshop. Contact Steven.Neal@lmu.edu to request a workshop for your team or for more information on upcoming workshops. 

Cultural Consciousness Conversations

Cultural Consciousness Conversations is a project of the Office of Intercultural Affairs in collaboration with Ethnic & Intercultural Services. This cohort of faculty, staff, and administrators from various divisions around campus get together once a month to share stories, learn from one another, examine societal norms and cultural differences, and deepen connections across all sectors of the LMU community. The aim of this project is to cultivate intergroup relations, including campus conversations and dialogues around difference.

Systemic Analysis Workshops

As we move into a new academic year, the Office of Intercultural Affairs continues to develop resources, support, and programming that can help facilitate our university’s efforts to address systemic racism in concrete ways.  

How do we proceed with addressing systemic racism?

An internally focused systemic analysis is the first step.  The point of this process is to consider how obstacles are “baked” into our systems and structures for the students we are trying to serve.  In doing so, we flip our perspective from asking “how do we change students to better meet the challenges of an LMU education?”  to “how do we change our institutional structures and processes to be more equitable, responsive, and inclusive in meeting the needs of all our students?”

OIA is offering consultation workshops for units who have begun their systemic analysis and would like guidance and further resources as they move through the steps. As aligned with LMU's Antiracism Project, and our university’s mission, where faith and justice are always intertwined, our objective is to equip all academic and staff units to fully engage the Systemic Analysis.

To prepare for this session, please be sure to review these Systemic Analysis checklists (for academic or staff-based departments).

In each 1-hour technical assistance session, participants will be able to discuss and refine approaches through identifying common challenges, sharing ideas, and trouble-shooting potential solutions together. All participants will receive a digital guidebook that includes resources, LMU demographic data, and helpful tips as well as recognition for the units that they represent on our OIA website page.

Workshops are scheduled Wednesdays from 11:00 AM – noon, starting July 29. After October 14, workshops will continue once a month through early April. 

Please click here to register for a workshop. Please note that all attendees must register for the workshop to get the Zoom link. 

As units work through the Systemic Analysis process, there will be opportunity to share your progress, receive tips and feedback, and learn from others.

Campus-wide

DEI Committees Across Sectors

  • The Presidential Black Leadership Advisory Council (P.B.L.A.C.) has been created to provide guidance, feedback, and support to the university on the Anti-Racism Project.  This work includes reviewing communications, providing critical perspectives and consultation to leadership (directors, deans, VPs, etc), interpreting data (e.g., Equity Scorecard, salary equity findings, etc.) and providing recommendations that will help shape future policies and processes at the university at multiple levels.  The overarching goal of the P.B.L.A.C. is to center the concerns of Black students, faculty, and staff and to provide informed insight and constructive support--given multiple roles, constraints, and realities of university functioning--that will help the university function as an anti-racist institution.

  • The BCLA Diversity & Inclusion Working Group is charged with creating a Diversity and Inclusion Strategic Plan for the college. Through a deliberative process, which included focus groups and College leadership and College-wide discussion, supported by an OIA Inclusive Excellence Grant, the group developed a BCLA Strategic Plan that was endorsed by the BCLA College Council in May, 2019. The group continues to work on concrete metrics and outcomes and supported the Dean’s efforts to develop a BCLA Diversity and Inclusion Implementation Table, which was endorsed by the BCLA College Council in February, 2020. As an outcome of BCLA’s diversity, equity, and inclusion process, Stefan Bradley was appointed as the inaugural BCLA Coordinator of Diversity and Inclusion Intiatives. Professor Bradley will continue BCLA’s efforts for at least the next two years.

  • The College of Communication and Fine Arts has deep commitments to transformative education and social justice.  These foundations inform the various aspects of our College community and will carry forward into the work that the College now undertakes in response to the University’s broad diversity, equity and inclusion  initiatives. This work, newly operationalized in alignment with the specific objectives and timelines set out by the University, extends the always critical, always mission-driven work that is at the heart of CFA’s social and intellectual culture.

    Steering Committee

    In response to the University’s call for DEI action, accountability and assessment at the Unit level, CFA is implementing a College-Wide Steering Committee to organize College DEI activities, conduct College-level analyses and generate, where appropriate, College-level action items.

    This Steering Committee will have the following representation:

    • Dean: Bryant K. Alexander, Charge and ex-officio member
    • Dean’s Office: Michele Hammers, Associate Dean and Elaine Walker, Assistant Dean
    • Departmental Representation (in most cases, one faculty member or advanced graduate student per Department):
      • Art History: Melody Rod-ari
      • Communication Studies: Kyra Pearson
      • Dance: Kristen Smiarowski and Laura Smyth
      • Marital and Family Therapy: Amanda Martin
      • Music: Martha Masters
      • Studio Arts: Selwa Sweidan
      • Theatre: Christopher Murillo
    • Staff Members from Across Job Functions:
      • Senior Administrative Coordinator: Lisa Tanaka
      • Academic Advisor: Jameia McDuffie
      • Technical Support: [pending]
    • Current Students and Recent Graduates:
      • Jose Camacho
      • Abigail Manullang
      • Simrah Farrukh

    In addition to meeting and working as a whole, the Steering Committee will utilize smaller working groups to engage in targeted tasks.  Other individuals within the College have expressed interest in supporting the Steering Committee’s efforts and will be included in working groups as appropriate.

  • To support the University’s efforts to engage in an institutional reflection and action process, and to address SOE community concerns that we take substantive and timely actions that reflect our commitment to supporting equity and social justice while working to eradicate racism, and other pernicious forms of oppression, the SOE has established the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Action Committee (DAC) as a standing committee.

    The purpose of the DAC is to collaboratively lead, design and coordinate equity, inclusion, and diversity-related processes and programs for the LMU School of Education that are consistent with the SOE’s philosophy on diversity, equity, and inclusion as articulated in the SOE Conceptual Framework and the University’s commitment to reflection and anti-racist action as articulated by President Tim Snyder in his message Beyond Words. As such, the DAC will work to foster a stronger understanding of social inequities and historical forces of oppression, to investigate systemic forms of racism and oppression, to reduce institutional barriers for people of color and other marginalized groups, and to foster an inclusive culture in which all faculty, staff, and students can reach their full potential. 

    The DAC will work closely with the SOE’s Leadership Team to foster the schools’ diversity and equity mission.  In collaboration with the SOE Dean and leadership team, the inaugural DAC will establish goals and create a 3-year plan for actions and outcomes with indicators of measurable progress on DAC activities and actions.

Virtual Forum Series

This monthly series will consist of speakers and facilitated breakout room small group discussions to promote the development of LMU as an anti-racist institution through campus-wide dialogue and education.  The fall series will examine anti-racism through different lenses and issues—free speech, impacts of white supremacy and anti-Black racism, and religious/spiritual values and traditions.  The spring series will focus on the Jesuit legacy and Catholic church’s role in impeding and supporting racial justice.

Listening Sessions

Racism & Trauma in the Modern Moment - On June 3rd the Office of Intercultural Affairs hosted over 500 LMU community members -- students, faculty and staff -- at a virtual forum designed to acknowledge the trauma of systemic violence against African Americans. The conversation was oriented towards students and all community members negatively affected by the violence leading to the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, the most recent victims of a longstanding, ongoing, historical trauma. Facilitators included: Dr. Stefan Bradley (BCLA), Megan Castillo '19 (graduate student and community organizer), Dr. Cheryl Grills (BCLA), and Henry Ward (EIS). At this forum, many students were given the space to share their feelings, experiences, and expectations of the university; a beginning step to the anti-racism project. 

University Advancement
