AEM 3015 Developing Racial Equity in Organizations
Through Jennifer Majka’s AEM 3015 Developing Racial Equity in Organizations course, students learn how to be change agents and assist in creating more just and equitable organizations. The course is designed to cultivate a theoretical and practical understanding and application of the concepts behind systemic oppression and social justice. Students apply what they’re learning in the course as they work in a professional consulting team to deliver a high-quality product or service to a community partner that helps develop racial equity within the organization.
As a Faculty Fellow in Engaged Learning, Majka is continuing to develop best practices for community engagement, building community partnerships and learning new teaching practices to incorporate the values, skills and knowledge of community engagement in ways that enhance academic rigor.
“I’m interested in diving deep into the theory and practice of engaged learning including critical reflection, partnership development and transformative learning.” —Jennifer Majka
