Welcoming Diversity at UAA

by Kathleen McCoy  |   

Join UAA students, faculty, staff and administrators for a presentation and workshop with trainers from the National Coalition Building Institute, an award winning, international, non profit training organization on April 5 and 7 to discuss best practices for becoming a more welcoming campus for all students and faculty at UAA. Both events will be held in Library 307. On April 5 from 7 to 9 p.m. come to a free public presentation on Turning Principle into Practice: Creating Welcoming and Diverse Learning Communities. On April 7 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. participate in a free workshop on Welcoming Diversity, which helps participants:

•    celebrate their similarities and differences,
•    recognize the misinformation they have learned about various groups, including their own,
•    learn about and reevaluate personal attitudes and behaviors that are based on the impact of prejudice and discrimination,
•    claim pride in their group identities,
•    understand the personal impact of discrimination through the telling of stories
•    learn hands-on tools for dealing effectively with offensive remarks and behaviors.
