Over the last twenty years the higher education environment has seen a shift in the diversity of students coming to college campuses. Specifically, these spaces have become more diverse with students from various ethnic, socioeconomic, political, sexual, and social backgrounds. By neglecting to engage and understand the lived experiences of black men faculty run the risk of making them feel excluded, which could result in negative health and educational outcomes. This session will discuss how faculty can incorporate contemplative practices and theory into their classrooms to create just, equitable, and inclusive campus environments.
