Educators, particularly those at the college level, have a responsibility not just to impart objective, value-neutral information, but to teach and hone students’ skills in critically evaluating that information, as well as to make them aware that the creation of knowledge is a social and cultural process. At the School of the Art Institute, we have both a unique opportunity and particular responsibility to urge students to question received knowledge and accepted truths that maintain and naturalize the socially unjust status quo.
