With Liberty and Justice for All: Our Continued Role as Social Justice Educators
Tuesday, April 17, 9 a.m. - noon, MUB Theatre I
A professional development workshop for staff, faculty and graduate students, facilitated by Vernon Wall. The term “social justice” is being used (and misused) on college and university campuses more and more these days. What are the characteristics of a campus community committed to social justice? Are we doing things in the name of social justice that are not congruent with the true spirit of equity and inclusion? In this program, 12 personal reflections on the current state of social justice education in higher education will be shared as well as an opportunity to assess your campus's successes and challenges in providing an environment that is welcoming to all.
Speaking Up to Bias in the UNH Workplace
Thursday, May 3
Learn how to identify incidents of bias and strengthen your ability to address those issues in a positive and constructive way. Participants will learn about bystander reactions to implicit biases and how these reactions can help or hinder decisions to intervene. Stephanie A. Goodwin, a leading expert on bias intervention, and UNH PowerPlay Interactive Development will facilitate this training. This program is a collaboration of UNH ADVANCE and the Office of Community, Equity and Diversity.
All events are presented or co-sponsored by the Office of Community, Equity and Diversity. All sessions will be wheelchair accessible. For additional accommodations, you may need to contact the EEO/ADA Compliance Officer at (603) 862-2930 (voice) or call NH Relay 7-1-1.
