EDUC 401 O: Intersecting Identities and Community Cultural Wealth

  • Date: Thursdays
  • Time: 11:30 AM – 1:30 PM
  • Location: TBD
  • SLN: 14484
  • Facilitators: Christian K. Love (ChrisK.Love@live.com)

Course Description:

Through the frameworks of intersectionality and Critical Race Theory, students will have an opportunity to learn about how salient and non-salient identities intersect within K-12 and higher education spaces. Through class activities (i.e. implicit bias tests, identity wheel of privilege and oppression, personal narratives, video vignettes, etc.), students will gain a clear understanding on how to best serve and support diverse and marginalized student populations. Finally, students will hear from and engage with guest speakers on the intersections of race and education, health, solidarity, etc. and their implications for the students, families, and community members they serve within their Riverways service learning placements.


For EDUC 401 seminars, the number of credits a student receives depends on the number of tutoring hours completed in addition to seminar attendance. Seminars are Credit/No Credit, and are I&S credits. Credit and tutoring requirements are as follows:

  • 1-3 credits*: 20 hours of tutoring over the quarter
  • 4 credits: 40 hours of tutoring over the quarter
  • 5 credits: 60 hours of tutoring over the quarter
  • 6 credits**: 80 hours of tutoring over the quarter

A student may opt to register for 1 or 2 credits if it means avoiding an additional registration fee. ** If a student would like to register for more than 6 credits, they should email riverways@uw.edu with the request.

Current EDUC 401 Students: Need to change the number of credits for your seminar? Riverways staff can help you do this for free. Please email riverways@uw.edu before Friday of Week 7.
