Flex Friday activities are professional learning opportunities that are designed to increase your capacity to take humanizing action on campus: both inside the classroom and outside the classroom. Each opportunity is a collaborative, reflective, and active learning experience. In other words, you'll learn how to put theory to practice so that you can foster the academic, social, and psychological success of students from minoritized communities.

Student Equity Day is an opportunity for administrators, faculty, staff, and student leaders to engage in a series of professional learning opportunities during Flex Week (i.e., the week before the fall and spring semester). It offers an appropriate prelude to the school year as well as a checkpoint between semesters to refresh our sense of educational mission as it relates to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion.
