A group of 33 Drew students gathered to learn about and engage in a two day workshop discussing race.
A group of 33 Drew students gathered to learn about and engage in Courageous Conversations About Race. As part of the workshop, students focused closely on race, including such topics as how race appears in everyday life, exploring the definition and history of race in the United States, and discussing their own racial identities. This process called for deep reflection and conversations that will continue to reverberate over time. At one point in the day, a student asked, “Am I being Courageous?” We at Drew respond with a resounding “Yes!!”

Drew knows and believes in teenagers. We engage each student in a process of intellectual discovery to develop an individual voice, the confidence to express it, and the empathy to understand its impact.
