Racial Climate Programs: Campus Strategies for Success
Thursday, 6/30/2016, 2:00 - 3:30 p.m.
315 Rider Building, University Park

The Schreyer Institute invites you to join us for a webinar focused on strategies for creating an inclusive campus climate.

The webinar is being offered by Paper Clip Communications and led by Rev. Dr. Jamie Washington. The description on their website is as follows: "In a time when racial tensions are high on and off campuses — you can create a campus where inclusion and equity are among the defining principles of your institution. A first step might be identifying and learning what models and programs are working on other campuses, and lessons learned from your peers in higher education."

The webinar will address the following questions: How do you educate students and staff about microaggressions? What initiatives are working on other campuses that can be adapted to yours to help your students feel safe and included? What response strategies are most effective in responding to racial tension, derogatory behaviors and hate crimes in a campus setting? What is working in training faculty about how to address and discuss these issues in the classroom? What can you do to create a safe and inclusive living community?
