McGraw Center: Trigger Warnings and Microaggressions

Feb 9 2017 -
12:00pm to 1:30pm

What do these terms mean, and do they mean the same thing to students that they do to faculty? Join Dr. LaTanya Buck, Dean for Diversity & Inclusion and Dr. Rashidah Andrews, Director of Studies in Forbes College, who will lead this informal but structured lunch discussion with a collaborative unpacking of the terms "trigger warning" and "microaggression." They will use examples to engage the group in critical dialogue and suggest concrete ways in which we can present sensitive material inclusively and turn uncomfortable conversations or moments into opportunities to help our students come to appreciate their own assumptions and engage meaningfully across difference. No preparation is necessary.

Lunch will be provided.

Seating is limited; please RSVP by Monday, February 6
