Virtual Class Preview with Professor Andy Vosko

Welcome to Claremont Graduate University’s Virtual Spring Preview event! This is an exciting opportunity to gain insight into the academic and community aspects of our institution.

The event will begin with a brief introduction from our Associate Director of Admissions, Gabriela Krupa. Gabriela will provide an overview of the graduate programs offered at CGU, highlight the unique aspects of our community, and discuss the admissions process.

Attendees will then have the opportunity to attend a class preview led by Professor Andrew Vosko in the Transdisciplinary Studies Department, which will provide a glimpse into the engaging classroom culture at CGU. See below for the class description:

Transdisciplinary Tools for Equity: Institutions, Organizations, and Systems
Beyond ‘promoting awareness’ of systemic injustice, this new, transdisciplinary survey course offers a tools-based approach to first reveal entrenched inequities and then affect change at the institutional, organizational, and systems levels. We will explore the concept of ‘discrimination by-design,’ use complexity theory, systems thinking and temporal focus to re-frame our understandings of racism, identify effective tools and resources from both traditional academic and emerging fields, and apply realistic practices to help create more inclusive and equitable spaces of excellence.

At the end of the class preview, there will be an open question and answer session where prospective students can ask any questions they may have about CGU, the admissions process, or the programs offered.
