Exploring Bias: A Campus Dialogue
11:00 AM--1:00 PM Student Community Center, Meeting Room D

We all have personal biases – inclinations for or against individuals or groups that block impartial judgment. Based in normal cognitive shortcuts, biases can affect our actions, our thinking, and our decisionmaking, often with significant consequences. Join members of our campus community in dialogue as we explore our personal biases, examine where they arise, and share experiences of disrupting - or trying to disrupt - biases. The dialogue will be facilitated by trained moderators. Sponsored by Campus Dialogue & Deliberation and Office of Campus Community Relations.
