Event Description

Bias and discrimination come in many forms and persist on many levels in our society, despite efforts to promote inclusion and enact civil rights legislation. Whether subtle or overt, these issues continue to impact race relations in our country… and the experience of students of color in our classrooms. This seminar will help you better define concepts like bias, prejudice, and discrimination. You’ll explore the nature of implicit bias and stereotype threat, and discover tools to minimize bias in the classroom and in the workplace. Participants are welcome to bring a lunch to this discussion. Registration is required.

CTLT’s Foundations of Diversity seminars tackle tough questions involving culture, identity, and responsive teaching in a friendly, non-threatening environment. This seminar series can give faculty and staff an essential start in understanding issues that aren’t always easy to talk about.

This workshop falls under the AAC&U High-Impact Educational Practice of Diversity/Global Learning.

If you will need special accommodations, please contact the event organizer.
