In Upcoming Events, by , on October 1st, 2014

Dear Colleagues,

You are cordially invited to attend an interactive diversity workshop on Thursday, Oct. 2, from 3:30 – 5 p.m. Guest presenter, Dr. Derek Greenfield, is a well-respected diversity consultant and former faculty member, familiar with all aspects of the university experience. Please review his information when you have a moment.

Through Dr. Greenfield’s visit, we hope to spark campus wide dialogue on issues of diversity and inclusion. We also aim to gain a deeper understanding of the intersection between identity, power and privilege in our personal, academic and professional lives. Student leaders will also have an opportunity to meet with Dr. Greenfield in their own session and during his presentation to NUB students later in the evening.

The workshop will provide faculty and staff a chance to speak openly about their personal and professional experiences with diversity in terms of classroom and campus dynamics, conflict resolution, interpersonal relations. We ask that you consider completing this “60 second” survey to provide feedback and questions regarding your own experiences prior to this workshop. We will use this to prepare Dr. Greenfield so that this session can be constructive and useful to those in attendance. Questions may be directed to David Blackburn at deb@niagara.edu.
