As a dynamic hub for intellectual exploration and social progress, we are thrilled to offer development workshops designed for our KSU faculty members. These workshops serve as a vital resource, equipping educators with the necessary tools, knowledge, and guidance to address and navigate the complex multidisciplinary issues that impact our communities.

By harnessing the collective expertise of our esteemed faculty and leveraging their diverse perspectives, we aim to empower educators to make a meaningful impact in their classrooms and beyond. Join us as we embark on a transformative journey of learning, collaboration, and action, shaping a better future for all.

Current Workshop: Islamophobia

Since 2012, Kennesaw State University’s Center for Africana Studies has hosted annual faculty development workshops. Our current workshops are designed to offer guidance and resources for teaching about and against Islamophobia from an African, American and global context.

This website is a collection of resources dedicated to help the KSU community and beyond learn about how Islamophobia impacts us all and what educators can do to help address it through higher education institutions, starting right here at KSU.

It includes material from previous workshops – including summaries of key note presentations and materials covered, resources suggested for use in the classroom, curriculum material, media sources, a scholars directory and more.
