Event Description

On January 18, 2019, the university will host two diversity and inclusion workshops titled “Creating a University Culture Committed to Social Justice and Equity” with guest presenter Vernon Wall (https://www.vernonwall.org/). All faculty and staff are strongly encouraged to attend.

The workshops will be held in Plumley Armory from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Please plan to attend only one of the two sessions.

Workshop attendees will:

  • Explore introductory concepts and theories on social justice and inclusion.
  • Examine concepts of identity groups and privilege in our society.
  • Learn to use the “inclusion lens” to engage in authentic dialogue about the current culture and climate on campus.
  • Identify specific strategies and activities that support organizational movement towards becoming a more inclusive and socially just campus.
  • Develop a process to sustain conversations on organizational change beyond the workshop.

The workshops are supported by the Office of the Provost and the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Committee. They have been organized as a first offering to the community, as we work together in creating a campus climate and culture that is welcoming and inclusive to all.

Please contact Matt Roche with any questions at mroche@norwich.edu or ext. 2144.
