Immigrant and Refugee Students: An Equity Centered Approach

Led by Seema Pothini, President of the Minnesota Chapter of the National Association for Multicultural Education.

The key to strengthening equity efforts for immigrant and refugee-status students is understanding the challenges and barriers with which they contend both in and out of schools.

Participants Will:

  • Examine these barriers and how educators can remove them.
  • Learn how to recognize even subtle forms of bias and inequity bias immigrant and refugee-status students experience in relation to a variety of intersecting identities including race, ethnicity, culture, language, and socioeconomic status.
  • Discuss policies and practices that support equity and engagement.

Registration Fee:

Cancellation: You can cancel your own registration for an event before the cancellation deadline. (Please check the event information for specific cancellation details.) If the event has a fee, refunds are possible only if cancellation is prior to the deadline. If you do not attend and do not cancel prior to an event, you are still responsible for payment and will be billed.

Special Accommodations: Please alert Metro ECSU 2-3 weeks prior to the workshop/event if you need special accommodations, including sign language interpreters. (Metro ECSU requires a notice of 2 business days to cancel a sign language interpreter. If you fail to cancel, we reserve the right to bill your school/district for this expense.) Update your profile as needed. Special accommodations are not included with each registration, but are stored in your profile until you make changes.
