Diversity education can occur in or out a classroom. In this program, a case study, based on a real and recent event, will be reviewed regarding the essay contest sponsored as an academic writing competition. The manner in which it was created, administered and addressed comprised a series of controversial administrative events with diversity education implications for students. Participants will consider what it meant to walk in the students’ shoes, and to examine the type of educational experience being designed, the learning outcomes, delivery of instruction, and the unique aspects of the student population being served in efforts to construct a positive diversity educational experience.
This session is facilitated by Mike D'Arcangelo, director of diversity education
