Students will be experiencing a range of emotions as the semester comes to an end. Many have been impacted by the act of violence at the Table Mesa King Soopers in Boulder, the anti-Asian racism evidenced by the shootings in Atlanta, and the pending verdict in the trial of Derek Chauvin, which will decide whether the former police officer is guilty of murdering George Floyd in Minneapolis last May. The CU Boulder Center for Teaching & Learning has gathered resources to help your classroom preparations. 

If you would like to discuss the resources mentioned here or the recent events, please join the Inclusive Community of Practice meeting hosted by the Center for Teaching & Learning on Wednesday, April 21st from 12:00-1:15pm.
