SUP Symposium (Sunday, March 24, 9:30-11:30 OR 1:00-3:00)
The Association’s decision to broaden its mission and vision requires deliberate reflection on the structure of NASUP and a rethinking of the resources the association provides. In this symposium you will hear a short presentation about the rationale behind this rebranding endeavor followed by focus group discussions geared to getting input for NASUP leadership to consider. This session will be offered twice in order to get as much involvement as possible.
Anti-Racism Luncheon (Sunday, March 24, 11:35-12:55)
The Problem We All Live With: Equity-Based Partnerships Amidst Political Backlash
We invite you to join members of NASUP’s Anti-Racism Committee in a set of deliberative and constructive conversations around the challenges of working in schools, districts, colleges and universities within the context of a political backlash that is attempting to silence critical understandings of antiracism, equity, diversity, and inclusion. This session will include opening remarks and facilitated small group discussions with the hope of finding solidarity in our shared ideas and support. In the words of Margaret Mead, American cultural anthropologist, ‘Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world: Indeed it’s the only thing that ever has’. We hope you will join us for what will be an opportunity to collaborate and find support among like-minded colleagues and friends. This is a TICKETED EVENT.

Collaborative Conversations (Monday, March 25, 9:45-10:45)
As educators, we know that there is often little time to collaborate with other educators, yet taking the time to share and discuss is invaluable to our purpose and passion. Join like-minded fellow conference attendees for collaborative group sessions. Space will be provided for specific groups (e.g. preservice teachers, mentor teachers, partnership liaisons, etc.) to network and connect. Join us for a time of collaboration and conversation as we all strive to enhance our partnership work!
