Creating Cultural Inclusion on Campus

Location: Campus Center 301

What are the obstacles to cultural inclusiveness and how do we overcome them? We know we're not racists, yet why do people of different races feel excluded or marginalized? How do institutional structures inscribe inequity based on identity? This workshop provides a framework for creating culturally inclusive environments where all feel welcome, no matter what their identity. We will discuss obstacles to inclusion that are specific to higher education and reflected within our larger society through explorations of implicit bias, cognitive errors, microaggressions, and identity-blindness. Most importantly, we will devise processes specific to our institutional/departmental needs that help us move toward creating inclusive spaces where everyone thrives. Participants are encouraged to bring their whole selves to the discussion as well as a commitment to becoming a more culturally inclusive educator.

Special Restrictions: This event is open to students, faculty, and staff.
