Conversations for creating community

Reminder: On Thursday, October 26th, the first of four continuing conversations for creating community will be held at the Memorial Union from 2 to 4:30 p.m.

The goal is to bring together students, faculty and staff throughout the academic year, to share ideas and build relationships toward our shared vision of a respectful and inclusive campus environment. You are invited to attend a session within one of two interest circles, from 2:00 – 4:00 pm.

In order to determine the room size and refreshments for the “continuing conversations” discussion sessions, please register at:

Topics include:

I. Exploratory Conversations

  • Delving More Deeply into Diversity: “What do I bring to my classroom/workplace; what do I take away with me”
  • Defining Community

II. Skills for Taking Action: Where and How Can I Make A Difference?

  • The Classroom
  • The Workplace
  • Conflict and Leadership (Mediation, Facilitation)

From 4:00 to 4:30 pm will be the Wrap-up and Next Steps session, at the Memorial Union Main Lounge, 2nd Floor.
