Working Groups are a core way that EPI builds inclusive communities. Working Groups are made up of students, administrators, staff, and faculty. Working Groups create their own agendas and projects through a process of collaborating, brainstorming, and listening to each other. Please click here if you're interested in joining or finding out more about a Working Group.
In the past year, for example, Bridging Campus and Local Communities Working Group has been focused on increasing wifi accessibility in the wider Poughkeepsie community; the Inclusive Pedagogy and Curriculum Working Group has developed a student-faculty partnership program called STEPP (Student-Teacher Engaged Pedagogical Partnership); Capacity Building Working Group has been engaged in a project called “400 Years of Inequality.”
