Institute for Healing Racism

A group of students discussing matters related to racism.

The Institute for Healing Racism (IHR) aims to eliminate the structural racism that influences ideas and practices rooted in discrimination. The curriculum raises awareness of and about individual and institutional racism, and possible remedies for their elimination.

The  the two-day session is adapted from the book, Healing racism in America: A prescription for the disease, by Nathan Rutstein. Each session involves dialogue guided by trained facilitators that enrich the exercises with video and print materials.

By partnering with the Grand Rapids Chamber, GRCC continues the work and legacy of Bob Woodrick, founder of the Institute for Healing Racism.

A limited number of complimentary seats are available to current full-time GRCC faculty and staff.

Please register two (2) weeks before the desired workshop session.
