    • Centering Relationships for Systems Change (Diversity Index # 4873- On Demand Content) Time: 8:00am - Fri. 3/5 5:00pm Locations: Online Details:

      Have you struggled to listen to (let alone understand) someone who disagrees with you, how you think, or how you live your life? Do you find yourself unfriending people in your social networks or cutting off relationships because of opposing beliefs? You are not alone. During this session you will learn how fear and power imbalances impact our capacity to communicate and connect with people different from us, and what it means to remain “value-based” in your actions, even in the face of conflict, disagreement, and dominance.

    • Giving Up Privilege (Diversity Index # 4872- On Demand Content) Time: 8:00am - Fri. 3/5 5:00pm Locations: Online Details:

      The concept of “privilege” represents a deep misunderstanding of racism and its impacts, instead reifying White supremacy and sowing separation and guilt. During this webinar, you will learn to differentiate between three distinct phenomenon that have been lumped into “White Privilege”: 1) Human Rights, 2) “Systemic Obliviousness,” and, 3) “Entitlement.” We explore how “benefit” and “advantage” narratives—connotations of “privilege”—are counter-productive to solidarity and equity and instead reinforce White supremacy, advocate assimilation, and perpetuate paternalism and defensiveness. We also examine how “privilege” denies the costs to White people as non-targets of racism: loss of humanity, connection, and belonging. NOTE: In this offering we use “White privilege” for teaching concepts that apply to all types of oppression and the use of “privilege” in broader social justice work.

    • Stopping the Cycle of Oppression (Diversity Index # 4861- On Demand Content) Time: 8:00am - Fri. 3/5 5:00pm Locations: Online Details:

      No person is born agreeing to oppress others or be oppressed. Young people have an innate sense of justice. We entered the world clear about our significance and ability to make things go well. It takes the systematic mistreatment of young people for us to doubt our goodness, thinking, or power to ensure justice for all. To interrupt the cycle of oppression we will need to recognize how we were hurt and commit to heal from internalized messages of discouragement, helplessness, or powerlessness. Giving up, waiting, or resentfully going it alone are no longer our only options. When we reconnect to our inherent human capacity to heal, we can and will stop the cycle of oppression.

    • Diversity Week Keynote: Dr. Michele Harper (Diversity Index # 4633) Time: 9:45am - 11:15am Locations: Online (Zoom) Details:

      Dr. Michele Harper has worked as an emergency room physician for more than a decade. As a Black woman in an overwhelmingly white and male profession, Dr. Harper is passionate about the persistent societal issues that impact patients and providers alike. In her memoir, The Beauty in Breaking, and her talks, she weaves personal stories of trauma and resiliency into an ode to service and healing. Dr. Harper also directly confronts the myriad racial inequalities that appear in the medical profession and the importance of dismantling bigotry on a personal and structural level.

      Richard B. Talkin Family Art Virtual Gallery
      February 8th - March 15th, 2021

      Howard Community College Visual Arts Department is proud to feature Linnea Poole and Clark Decapite February 8th - March 14th as a part of the Virtual Exhibition Series.

      VIEW EXHIBIT

      Through the use of replicated forms taken from dated, often times antiquated objects; I attempt to represent the relationship between the existing and the existed. Much like snapshots taken out of the context of time, each object represents a moment within its previous reality. It is through the representational compiling of moments in time that a new structure is formed, dictated by each individual unit placement in the whole. In choosing to use glass within my work, I attempt to relate the individual objects to an ethereal realm with the aid of the material’s transparent yet structural qualities. Maintaining an earthly presence, the object is grounded under its material weight and through its delicate nature, discussing a tactile existence in which fragility undermines all existing structures present. Through the introduction of flaws often times contrasted by mechanical enrichment, a balance between purity and discord exist.

       
       
    • HCC at 50: A Blast From the Past
      HCC at 50: A Blast From the Past Time: 10:00am - 9:00pm Locations: Online Details:

      HCC at 50: A Blast from the Past - Daily Life from the First Two Decades

      On behalf of the Howard Community College (HCC) 50th Anniversary History Committee, we are pleased to present this collection of photos from the college archives. This collection presents photographs and documents depicting daily life on the HCC campus during the first two decades. From its earliest years, HCC has been more than just a place of scholarship, but has served as a locality for events, personal and community growth, and diversity.

       

      We hope that you enjoy this look back at some familiar faces, now-gone locations, fun events, as well as a look into the inner workings of what made our campus tick in the 1970’s and 1980’s. While not all photos have attributions, we must acknowledge the early work of Quent Kardos, who was the college photographer through this time period. His lens did not just capture the events at hand, but also the character of the places and people in these images.

       

      We hope you enjoy this look back and find, as we did, some of what makes Howard Community College a great place to learn, work, and grow. On behalf of the 50th Anniversary History Committee:

      Janelle Broderick, Brian Cumer, Thomas Engelman, Rosemary Williams

    • Lessons from students during COVID-19 at HCC (Diversity Index # 4635) Time: 1:00pm - 2:00pm Locations: Online (Zoom) Details:

      Covid-19 has affected our students greatly, from disturbance of face to face classes, to transition to remote learning. This panel discussion will invite different groups of students including students who are socioeconomically disadvantaged, who are from under-represented ethic groups, who have disabilities and students who are also parents to share their experiences dealing with COVID-19 related challenges. We will learn about different challenges that they face while learning remotely, and what are their strategies to deal with stress and rejuvenate themselves. More importantly, we would like to learn how we could better help our students succeed at HCC and in their future studies and careers, and build our education system more resilient at HCC.
