The Delta Program’s February 25th Roundtable dinner will focus on teaching inclusively in the context of national events like the Ferguson and Staten Island Grand Jury decisions. We will grapple with tough questions like: How do we as faculty, instructional staff and TAs address microaggressions in educational settings on campus? Are national events like the Ferguson and Staten Island Grand Jury decisions and discussions relevant to all courses? What message would it send to our students if all of their instructors took time to acknowledge these issues? As a program invested in the success of teaching and learning on campus, Delta invites you to gather with us as a community to discuss these challenging issues and their impact on our students, both as people and as learners. We want to provide members of our campus community with an opportunity to share ideas and expertise. And we want you to leave with something actionable in hand. Please join us on February 25th for this important discussion. This event is part of the ongoing discussion initiated by the Provost’s Office, the Vice Provosts for Diversity & Climate, Faculty & Staff, and Teaching & Learning. Registration is required.
