Microaggressions are small acts with potentially big effects—little behaviors that communicate hostile or derogatory slights towards a person or a group of people. These acts may be intentional or unintentional. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to identify microaggressions and explore the role they play on our campus. You’ll leave this seminar with a better understanding of the psychological impact these types of communications can have on others and how best to respond when a microaggression occurs. 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
