Bakersfield College

Social Justice Institute

Educational equity -- that's the focus of the Bakersfield College Institute for Social Justice. Their mission: to create a collaborative space for the BC community to engage in conversation and analyze issues of social justice, equity and pedagogy in the community college. They'll also study the impact of biases -- both intentional and unintentional -- in instruction, as well as other professional teaching and service contexts.
