EXPLORE STEM Faculty Development Session: José Vilson

The Critical Importance of Building ‘Sense of Belonging’ for Students in Mathematics and Beyond

As a part of the EXPLORE STEM Faculty Institute Series of talks, we are thrilled to have José Vilson visit SXU. 

José Luis Vilson graduated with a bachelor’s degree in computer science from Syracuse University and a master’s degree in mathematics education from the City College of New York. He is a full-time math educator for a middle school in the Inwood/Washington Heights neighborhood in New York City, and a writer, speaker, and activist. His first solo project, This is Not a Test: A New Narrative on Race, Class, and the Future of Education, is a collection of essays “provoking discussion on issues of race, gentrification, and the teaching profession from the eyes of a Black-Latino educator with a mix of research and first-hand experience." Vilson is the executive director of EduColor, a coalition of teachers, parents, and concerned citizens dedicated to the uplift of people of color in education.

This event is open to faculty, staff, and the community.

Light refreshments will be served.
