STATEMENT - Please provide a response to the following prompt (one page maximum; other):
College of Marin has defined "Equity-Mindedness" as the perspective or mode of thinking exhibited by faculty and leaders who call attention to patterns of inequity in student outcomes. These practitioners are willing to take personal and institutional responsibility for the success of their students, and critically reassess their own practices. It also requires that practitioners are race-conscious and aware of the social and historical context of exclusionary practices in American education. In order to understand and become equity-minded, we must assess and acknowledge our practices that may not be working. It takes understanding inequities as a dysfunction of the various structures, policies, and practices that we can control. Equity-minded practitioners question their own assumptions, recognize stereotypes that harm student success, and continually reassess their practices to create change. Please discuss the ways in which you would demonstrate equity mindedness in your role in the Kinesiology department and as the head coach for the men’s and women’s soccer teams. How would you personally contribute to the Kinesiology and Athletic Department’s goal of eliminating racial equity gaps in course and program success rates?
If you hold additional degrees beyond the Bachelor's and Master's level, please attach a copy of your transcript conferring these degrees as well. Unofficial transcripts are acceptable for application purposes, as long as they confer the degree and show the coursework taken and grades achieved. An official transcript would be required upon hire. FOREIGN DEGREE HOLDERS: Foreign degree credentials must be evaluated by a third party to determine the equivalent U.S. degree and major. Please review the following points carefully to determine whether you must submit a Foreign Credential Evaluation (FCE) with your application. Evaluations should provide the name of the institution attended, a description of your credentials, the major of study, and the U.S. equivalent for each credential. For a list of evaluating agencies, visit the State of California Commission on Teacher Credentialing.
