TSC: Mentoring Students of Color

In this Teaching Scholarship Circle (TSC), a four-session forum of roundtable discussions, we will grapple with the difficult issue of mentoring students of color. With the spate of violence against people of color over the past few years, and on the heels of the recent presidential election in which aspects of race were front and center, this issue has never been more important. Who are students of color? What does it mean to be “of color”? And how can we, in an educational environment, better aide these students in their academic journeys? We will discuss all of these issues, and more, in this TSC.



  • Dear Mentoring Students of Color TSC:

    Thanks (!) for a great forum.  I learned so much from all of you, and my desire to help my students of color in the classroom has never been greater.  I look forward to continuing this conversation both on and offline (and at Bedford Falls over a beer in about two hours!).  Here’s the link of the website I cited at the discussion this afternoon:

    All best! -Phil

  • Phil, thank you so much for organizing this group. It has been a profound experience for me getting to listen to and talk with every one of you. I’m sorry to miss out on the happy hour this afternoon, but I’ve got to pick up my kids from after school.

    I hope to continue these conversations with you all in the future. (and thanks for all the excellent suggestions for books to read – my reading list is super long now and I’m excited to have so many new titles added)
