The Community for the Advancement of Antiracist Instruction (CAAI) is a faculty learning community led by and for instructors and TAs and co-sponsored by the Center for Teaching and Learning and Faculty Affairs.  In spring of 2021, 15 instructors and TAs and 5 volunteer facilitators came together from colleges across campus for a four-week pilot of this new faculty learning community.  Participants' experience in the community culminated in an antiracist teaching action plan grounded in critical and inclusive pedagogies. CAAI invites you to view participants' experience culminating in their action plan videos
