The College is pleased to welcome Dr. Bryant Marks, who served as a Senior Advisor for the Obama White House Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities, to campus this month. Dr. Marks will demonstrate in this interactive presentation that stereotypes are often based on unconscious, “implicit” biases that need to be brought to the surface so that we can rewrite the narrative we tell about ourselves, our students, and our lives. The program will take place on Thursday, January 25, 2018, from 12:30 to 2 p.m. in the Taylor Auditorium, in the Begley Building on the SUNY SCCC campus. It is free and open to the public.
Dr. Marks is an Associate Professor of Psychology at Morehouse College where he directs the Program for Research on Black Male Achievement. He has years of experience conducting implicit bias training in education, law enforcement, the judiciary system, and the private sector. He served as a Senior Advisor for the Obama White House Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities, and as the Commissioner for the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for African Americans.
