This workshop, part one of two, is aimed at providing faculty with three experiential activities to use in the classroom, each of which is adaptable to different disciplines. The session will: 1) provide support and resources, enabling faculty to facilitate the success of minority students and engage in their advocacy, 2) transform faculty awareness of microaggressions that hurt minority students, 3) actively lessen microaggressions and increase sensitivity, community, and humility; and 4) cultivate a culture of inclusion and grow into openness and appreciation of diversity and more balanced leadership in the classroom. Join us to increase your multicultural competencies and learn about the Poverty and Privilege Walk of Life; 'Soup' Activity on microaggressions experienced and done; and the Fish Bowl Exercise to expose bias, prejudice, and oppression. 

  • Facilitators: Dr. Tes Tuason, Professor, Director of the Clinical Mental Health Counseling Program, Licensed Psychologist, and Faculty Excellence Fellow; and Dr. Gordon Rakita, Distinguished Professor of Anthropology and AVP of Faculty Excellence
