University of Georgia to Offer Course on White Privilege

The University of Georgia’s College of Education is set to offer a class detailing “whiteness and white privilege in education” in their Summer 2016 semester, hoping students will be able to recognize and “challenge” it after the class is over.  ECHD 8000: Whiteness & White Privilege in Education, which was first reported by iOTW Report, is detailed on the college’s official page.  The course promises “to provide students an opportunity to examine the dynamics of whiteness, white privilege, and racism in educational settings.”  “By exploring the history of whiteness in the U.S.,” the course description continues, “understanding theories related to whiteness, white privilege, and racism; and engaging in personal reflection, students will better understand their roles in addressing racism and white privilege in education.”   As a result of the class, the University of Georgia hopes that students will be able to “identify individual, institutional, and systemic examples of white privilege and racism in education contexts.”   It also hopes that students will know how to “challenge and address white privilege and racism in education.”  The course will be in session from May 16 until July 16 of 2015.
