How can we take meaningful steps toward creating more socially equitable learning environments?  At predominately white universities, students of color continue to experience discrimination, social isolation, and psychological challenges throughout their educational experiences. For example, micro aggressions, conversations about race or racially-based issues, and stereotype threat take a toll and can affect their ability to learn.  In this two-hour workshop, Dr. Pearson-Wharton offers practical steps and guidance for educators to effectively address race-based trauma in learning spaces.  

For nearly 20 years Dr. Stacey Pearson-Wharton has dedicated herself to helping students maximize their learning, health and well-being, and personal growth. Currently, she is the Dean of Health & Wellness and Director of Counseling Center at Susquehanna University. She has served as an Assistant Dean, Assistant Vice President, Counseling Center Director, Staff Psychologist, Academic Advisor, Career Counselor and even a Hall Director. She holds a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from the Pennsylvania State University and a Masters in Counselor Education from Indiana University of Pennsylvania.
