Black Lives Matter

The Center for Equity and Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CEETL) is in solidarity with those harmed by state violence, particularly Black men, women and gender non-binary people.

CEETL is grounded in anti-racist pedagogy framed in equity and inclusion for excellence because education is liberation. As we — faculty-students-staff — bear witness to ongoing police brutality and the bravery of people willing to put themselves in harm's way to fight against it, let us live and educate by the SF State motto, “Experientia Docet.” Let these experiences teach us how to liberate ourselves and others. Please visit the CEETL anti-racist pedagogies page for a full list of curated resources to support anti-racist teaching.
