DEI Foundations: Allyship in Higher Education

MEMBER-EXCLUSIVE COURSE

DEI Foundations: Allyship in Higher Education

Elevate voices and perspectives of historically marginalized people by becoming an ally.

Allyship is an opportunity to elevate the voices and perspectives of historically marginalized people to level power dynamics and ensure that their perspectives are heard and accounted for in every interaction.  If you’re interested in learning more about what allyship is and how it can benefit your organization, this video course is a great place to get started. 

This course will take a foundational approach to help you:  

  • Define allyship and understand what it is and what it is not.  
  • Reflect on considerations for becoming an ally,  
  • Understand common mistakes made by allies, and 
  • Reflect on your own social identities to become an ally for others. 

This course is designed for anyone interested in learning about allyship within a higher education setting.  This course is most beneficial to anyone unfamiliar with what it means to be an ally or interested in exploring allyship within the context of higher education. 

This course is part of our foundational Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion series––an intentional collection of personal development and skill building trainings––which provide education and awareness-building, self-reflection, and next steps.  

The following lessons are included with this course.

Course Highlights

  • 26 mins

Domonic Rollins, Ph.D.

Consultant & Coach | Organizational Change & Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion/h4>

 

Domonic is an expert facilitator of inclusive organizational change. With a specific focus on creating the conditions where marginalized people can thrive, Domonic aids leaders and organizations in engaging in difficult conversations about race, identity, and difference. He has served as the inaugural Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) at The Dalton School located in New York City. In this role, Domonic provided leadership and oversight to develop a comprehensive diversity, equity, and inclusion strategy to support the fundamental Dalton principle that diverse beliefs, ethnicities, cultures, and lifestyles are a critical underpinning of a successful education in today’s global society.

He also served as the inaugural Senior Diversity and Inclusion Officer at Harvard Graduate School of Education. In that role, Domonic provided leadership and vision for advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion at HGSE, in alignment with school-wide priorities. Domonic executed a broad range of strategic and tactical activities related to the identification, development, and delivery of diversity and inclusion initiatives for faculty, students, and staff. A hallmark of his work there and presently is translating big ideas about diversity and inclusion into practical solutions and considerations for organizations and interpersonal relationships.

Prior to joining HGSE, Domonic was the senior education and training specialist in the Office of Diversity and Inclusion at the University of Maryland. He earned his Ph.D. in Higher Education, Student Affairs, and International Education Policy from the University of Maryland–College Park, where his dissertation research investigated how Black male administrators navigate racism in higher education.
