Core Faculty: Prophetic Voice and Social Transformation
The CHI faculty member who oversees this curriculum thread will oversee an existing syllabus of classes which play an integral role in our foundational pedagogy. There is also room for original content creation and development. The individual holding this thread is expected to teach some, but not all classes, as inviting a wide range of perspectives and subject-area expertise is integral to our approach. To give a sense of what this curriculum thread has been, the titles of class which have been taught are:
o Intersectionality, Deep Culture, and Change Theory for Justice Settings
o Restorative Justice, Dialogue Circles
o Community & Movement Ministry
o Media Management
o Spiritual Care with the Trans-identified
o Tools for Culturally Responsive and Inclusive Spiritual Spaces
In addition to the curriculum thread, this faculty member works closely with our Deep Culture Committee to expand our understanding, learnings, and culture around inclusivity, accessibility, transparency, and appropriation. The Chaplaincy Institute is in a continued effort to understand its presenting culture and to make steps toward a deeper sense of radical welcome and inclusion.
