Interested in Diversity Education? There are several ways for you to get engaged and increase your cultural humility. The first is, A Cup with T (Dr. Taj Smith), a drop-in consultation hour. Joining me at each offering this semester will be NTID’s Interim Director of Diversity and Inclusion, Pam Christopher. Bring your questions or ideas related to diversity, inclusion and equity. There are three opportunities: Sept. 16 (Java's), Oct. 11 (CSD Lobby) and Nov. 5 (Artesanos).
The second, Into the Roc—The People’s Track, provides a limited number of faculty, staff, students and alums an opportunity to learn about our rich regional diversity--past and present. Join us on September 28 (Ethnic Food Tour) and October 3 (LGBTQ+ Tour). Faculty and staff can sign up here.
On September 30th, new faculty can participate in a workshop on responding to microaggressions and managing difficult conversations in the classroom. New faculty can register here. Register at http://bit.ly/Inclusive-Minded-Faculty
If none of these opportunities fits your schedule or you need something more unique you can also make special workshop requests of Tina Chapman, Chris Hinesley, Monica Sanford, Pam Christopher or Taj Smith on the Diversity Education website. Since July 2019, Dr. Taj Smith has engaged 90 employees and students in this capacity.
Registration for this semester’s Cultural Humility Certificate workshops is full with 202 employees expected to complete at least one workshop. Next semester’s workshop schedule will be released on October 7. Employees can sign up via Talent Roadmap.
Breaking Bread began on September 9th with 23 employees signed up and committed to building authentic relationships across difference.
There are 11 people signed up for this semester's Teaching Circle on inclusive pedagogy. In this space, faculty and teaching staff explore ways to enhance their ability to teach a diverse student body.
