Faculty Event - Freedom of Expression in the Classroom

11:30 AM -- 1:30 PM
Student Community Center, Meeting Room D
When free speech issues arise in the classroom it 
creates an opportunity to leverage the conversation for learning; however, doing so in the moment can be challenging. This workshop is designed to help instructors practically address and unpack difficult conversations that are aligned with the Principles of Community. The session will have a number of common scenarios (e.g. political messages on hats, microaggressions on Canvas discussion forums) and tools to constructively re frame the classroom environment.
Please RSVP to by 2/24.
Lunch will be provided.
Facilitated by: Kem Saichaie, Center for Educational Effectiveness, Dr. Mark Verbitsky, Political Science & Vickie Gomez, Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Griots Workshop with Janae Johnson

Student Community Center, Meeting Room D
The “I Am Not a Product” workshop is designed to allow the diaspora to embrace their past and shed a positive light on their future. We will have a special performance by Janae Thompson and student scholar Malissia Bordeaux! They will co-lead a workshop to help guide you through poetry writing.
Sponsored by: The Cross Cultural Center and LGBTQIA+ Resource Center for Black Futures Month.
Thus, while this event is open to everyone, we are prioritizing the experiences of QTPOC.
