Educational studies majors Kristi Carey ’15 and Michelle Sagalchik ’15 led 15 Colgate students to the annual White Privilege Conference (WPC) in Madison, WI. Accompanied by Professor John Palmer, who was a keynote speaker, the students engaged in three days of workshops and speakers examing the pervasiveness of privilege and oppression in society around intersections of race, class, gender, sexuality, ability, nationality, and language.

Two weeks after returning, Colgate’s Anti-Racism Coalition, led by educational studies majors Hoa Bui, Michelle Sagalchik, and Kristi Carey led the “Skin Deep: Going All In” workshop on campus facilitating a process of coming to racial consciousnesses. You can read more about the workshop in the Maroon News.
